Yorkville

A Gem of a Deal

Some of the best deals to be had on the Upper East Side can be found in Yorkville.  Its proximity to the waterfront and reasonable cost of living makes up for its slightly removed distance from the subway –  even then, it’s just a short walk to the 6 train for commuters to downtown, and the long awaited 2nd Avenue subway line shows signs of finally arriving.

Competitively priced and with a demographically diverse population, Yorkville – on the northeast part of the Upper East Side, right on the East River – offers a homey, relaxed atmosphere with access to the rest of the area’s offerings.  Formerly known as an enclave for Eastern European immigrants, particularly Germans, it is now home to young professionals and first-time buyers eager to invest in the potential of this corner of the Upper East Side.

Extra cachet for locals comes from being neighbors with the Mayor of New York City, whose official home is in Gracie Mansion on 88th St and East End Avenue.  

Popular Types of Housing

Yorkville’s housing options are varied, from tenement-style walk-ups to new high-rises, and everything in between.
