The Upper East Side is a Manhattan neighborhood stretching between Central Park and the East River, and 59th Street to the south and 96th Street to the north.



Along 5th Avenue and Central Park, the Upper East Side actually extends past Mount Sinai Medical Center to 110th Street, but as you move east toward the East River, the Upper East Side ends where the railroad tracks emerge at 97th Street. Embedded within the Upper East Side are the neighborhoods of Yorkville, centered on 86th Street and Third Avenue, and Carnegie Hill, centered on 94th Street and Fifth Avenue, and Lenox Hill, centered on 69th Street and 1st Avenue. Its north/south avenues are Fifth Avenue, Madison Avenue, Park Avenue, Lexington Avenue, Third, Second and First Avenues, York Avenue, and East End Avenue (the latter runs only from East 79th Street to East 90th Street).
