Hello Upper East Side

To walk in New York’s Upper East Side is to tread in the footsteps of some of history’s wealthiest and most influential family dynasties. During America's Gilded Age, the palatial residences that line Fifth Avenue were occupied by the likes of the Carnegie, Rockefeller and Roosevelt families. Hence the name, Millionaire's Row. Upper East Side is New York at its sophisticated, unhurried and culturally vibrant best, complete with leafy avenues, luxurious apartment blocks and world-renowned museums and art galleries. You can check out the stunning collection at the MET on Museum Mile, before heading up to the Roof Garden Cafe and Martini Bar to enjoy stunning views of Central Park. Wander through the park afterward and you'll emerge on the other side in Upper West Side, which is home to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and Zabar's – a New York institution.
