The Upper East Side, firm favorite for housing in NYC

Expat US relocation services relocates employees all over the United States. We aim to find the best places in every city for our clients, so that they feel at home and have the best possible experience in their new city. In New York, the Upper East Side has proven to be a favorite among our expatriates.

The Upper East Side is a neighborhood in the borough of Manhattan, which can be found between Central Park/Fifth Avenue, 59th Street, the East River, and 96th Street. It has become one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the city and contains the largest concentration of individual wealth in Manhattan; take a walk through the neighborhood and you could bump into anyone from Woody Allen, to Spike Lee or even Madonna.

As well as being a hotspot for celebrity sightings, the Upper East Side also boasts a great number of other attractions. A walk through the neighborhood will allow you to sample some of the city’s best cuisine, buy keepsakes and find activities to keep the children entertained. Furthermore, the eclectic mix of old and new architecture adds to the Upper East Side’s charm.

For a perfect day in the Upper East Side, we suggest starting your morning with a coffee and a fresh pastry. The area is now home to one of the most famous French bakeries, Maison Kayser that has recently opened a store on 74th and 3rd avenue and that will give you a taste of France in the middle of New York City. Following breakfast, take advantage of the many children’s clubs in the area, where they can take music classes, gym classes or other activities, which will give you time to enjoy the shops in the area. The Upper East Side is home to luxury stores and a wide variety of fine restaurants, which has landed it the nickname of the “Silk Stocking District”.

For a more relaxing day, you could take advantage of the many spas and nail salons present in the area for a day of pure pampering in true New York style.

If you are looking for a grocery store you will be spoilt for choice; Zabar, Fairway, Agatha, Valentina, Citarella, Costco and the Food Emporium are all nearby to cater to all your grocery needs.

A key concern for expatriates with children when searching for a place to live in a new city is the proximity to schools and the quality of the education their children will receive. The Upper East Side is a firm favorite for expatriates with children as it is home to some of the best schools in the city, like for example the Brearley School or the Dalton school. Furthermore the neighborhood is home to the Lycée Français, which is one of the most renowned bilingual French schools in North America.

Expat US relocates most of their expatriates to apartments in this neighborhood located in the area from 68th street to 97th street between York and 3rd.
