This neighbourhood is the epitome of high society way of life associated with the big apple. Well kept buildings, dog walkers and well clothed fashionistas pushing baby carriages adorn the streets. But like all NY neighbourhoods, this one is diverse and plenty of local residents live modestly. A fitting place to begin your exploration of the UES is the infamous shrine to conspicuous consumption, Bloomingdales at 59th and Lexington ave and 3rd ave. Serious shoppers can get a lot accomplished here while others may have more fun watching. Cross over to Park ave and enjoy the lighted pine trees in December, paid for by the residents on Park avenue. Stroll up fifth ave having tea at the famous Pierre hotel and then enjoy visiting the endless musuems along Fifth Ave, The Met, Guggehiem etc or take in the spectacular town houses between the avenues reminiscent of another way of life. Central Park has an endless array of entertainment and relaxation, to be enjoyed as you please, be it listening to the philharmonic orchestra, watching a shakespeare play, picinicing or exercising. If I can be so bold as to say you really are at the center of the universe with everything at your finger tips! Whats more there are several high end grocery stores just steps from your front door, Citerella, Elis, Butterfields.
