Introducing Upper East Side
There are infinite ways to tackle the neighborhood that contains some of the richest zip codes in the US. Begin with a walk south down Fifth Ave, starting at about 96th St. This will take you down storied Museum Mile (studded with vintage mansions and prestigious museums). At 72nd St, scoot east to Madison Ave and head south, where you can then enjoy the sight of some of the country’s most extravagant flagship boutiques (Vera Wang, Prada and Lanvin, to name a few). The path is strewn with old-world cafes and opulent bars. Welcome to the rarefied air of uptown.
