  • New York
  • Upper East Side, district dedicated to art and architecture lovers

    Known as, ‘the Silk Stocking District’, with its affluent population and pricy real-estate – among the highest in the United States – the Upper East Side district has been home to New York’s aristocracy for more than a century.

    Reputed for its signature architecture, characterising New York City’s most splendid manors and buildings, Upper East Side is home to the highest concentration of museums, palace-style hotels (Plaza Hotel, Carlyle Hotel, Plaza Hotel Athenee, Four Seasons, The Pierre Hotel) and luxury boutiques.

    Also worth discovering: the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum, two of the most important museums of art in the world, the famous art gallery the Neue Galerie, the private collection of The Frick Collection, The Museum of the City of New York and the Jewish Museum of New York.
