Friendly, clean, and many great restaurants! There are subways and buses in this neighborhood that typically run on schedule. There are convenience stores, gyms, coffee shops, and schools all within walking distance.

I think that the people are very friendly here and that the sense of community is wonderful. I see people walking their dogs all the time or strolling past stores, and it makes my time here all the more enjoyable. Traffic is a problem from time to time, though.
I have been living in the Upper East Side for three years, and I adore it. Living near the park has been essential to my mental health and has given me great focus when it comes to my education. New York can be so overwhelming and congested, but the Upper East Side is like nowhere else: it is quiet, calm and extremely friendly. I can't imagine living anywhere else in New York.
