Away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Manhattan is this section of the Upper East Side named Yorkville. Residential but still full of small businesses, restaurants and coffee shops, it is a quiet place to live and offers easy access to many places of interest such as:
Carl Schurz Park and Gracie Mansion: with its winding paths, green lawns, basketball courts, this park will be the perfect spot to stroll, relax or play sport and enjoy the waterfront views. The park hosts Gracie Mansion, official residence of the NYC mayors. You'll find it down the street form the apartment.
Historical sites: walk three avenues west and check out the Jeffersons Building (officially called Park Lane Towers) symbolizing luxury living in the 1970s; or the New York Society Library one mile (1.6 km) away, the oldest cultural institution in New York.
Museum Mile: less than a mile away (1.6 km) is this stretch of 5th Avenue from 82nd street to 108th Street that houses many world famous museums such as the MET (Metropolitan Museum of Art), the Guggenheim, Neue Galerie New York or the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Central Park: enter the park on 85th street and admire the natural beauty of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir and the views of the city skyline!
Restaurants: typical French cuisine is served at Cafe D'Alsace 0.5 miles (750 m) away; and even closer is the Italian Cavatappo Grill (0.4 miles / 600m) or the Greek Ithaka (0.3 miles / 650 m). If you wish to cook at home, you'll find a fruit and vegetable market right around the corner, and lots of stores and delis on 86th Street and 2nd Avenue.
