Home of the well-heeled and the world-renowned

The Upper East Side of New York City is known for its well-to-do residents, fabulous shopping, and world-famous museums. Some of America's most celebrated families have called the neighborhood home, from the Rockefellers and Carnegies to the Roosevelts and, more recently, the Trumps. If you're considering an Upper East Side vacation rental, well, it's hard to imagine anyone doubting your good taste. From Impressionist art at the Guggenheim to the bike paths of Central Park, the neighborhood features some of New York's most iconic must-sees.

Things to do

Art? Culture? Design? Yeah, we have a museum for that

This particular piece of Manhattan is home to Museum Mile. Whether you need quiet time to contemplate Picasso's great works or want to wow the whole family with a display of digitally printed furniture, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum will have you covered. El Museo del Barrio is another highlight, with exhibits on Latino culture in the Americas from the pre-Columbian era to modern times. When museum fatigue sets in, head to the Central Park Zoo to commune with the animals in the fresh air.

Activities

Give in to shopaholism or relive tales of the small screen

Looking to explore the sights? Just head out the door of your Upper East Side vacation rental and start walking. You can take your own tour of the neighborhood's beautiful mansions or sign up for a guided trip to the locations of popular TV shows, like Gossip Girl and Sex in the City. You might stroll down Madison Avenue and get some shopping done at one of its 150 designer clothing boutiques. Kids in your party? Never fear. They'll love to tour the many playgrounds of Central Park.

Weather

Warm summers, cold winters, and a healthy dose of wet stuff

New York is pretty humid in summer, with highs in the 80s and 90s, and the Upper East Side is no exception. Most Upper East Side vacation rentals will have air conditioning, but there's no harm in double checking. Winters are cold and damp, but the ocean's influence keeps temperatures from going to extremes. February is the coldest month, with a 35¡F average, and snowfall is common from December through early March. Spring and fall are often sunny and breezy, but sometimes cloudy and wet, so bring a hopeful attitude and an umbrella just in case.

Natural features

Let the Upper East Side be your unexpected urban jungle

Sure, you're in an urban wonderland, but book a vacation rental on the east side of the Upper East Side and you'll be close to more plant and animal life than you might expect. Carl Schurz Park is one of the city's lesser-known but more beautiful green spaces, with lawns, woodland areas, and views of the East River. Its gardens feature sunflowers, sage, lilies, and roses. Head west and you'll bump into the granddaddy: Central Park. You'll see turtles, ducks, warblers, and wrens by day, plus bats and owls by night.
