"Busy and Bustling -Just as I like it"

East 85th Street is a busy street located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. This street which extends from Carl Schurz Park on East End Avenue to Central Park on Fifth Avenue hosts a mix of commercial and residential establishments. The real estate scenario of this street features townhouses, low rise walk-ups which coexist with several amenity filled and luxurious condominium buildings. The street's newest builds include lavish properties like the Lucida which is located at 151, 85th Street at Lexington Avenue and is touted to be New York's 1st LEED Certified Green Condominium and the Georgica which is located on 305, 85th Street on third avenue.
Aside from residential properties, 85th Street hosts a large outpost of the US post called the Gracie Post Office which is located between second and third avenues and is usually my go to post office of choice especially on tax day i.e. 15th April as it is large enough to accommodate the laggards. Also located on this street are several bank branches including the one I bank at as well as many great restaurants like Jacques Brasserie between Second and Third Avenue, Dean and Deluca at Madison Avenue, Andres Café between Second and Third Avenue, Panorama at 3rd Avenue and Energy Kitchen on 84th and 85th Street.
  • Good dining options
  • Hosts a large outpost of the US post
  • Close to the subway
  • Frat bars dominate the nightlife scene
  • Its far from downtown
  • Gentrification changing the character of the street rapidly

"Pretty street, places to go for all"

This street is smack in the middle of various streets that offer plenty of restaurants, and East 85th is no exception. There is also a yoga studio (these are really popular in this neighborhood) and an Equinox fitness gym. If you have to chose from the restaurants on this street, go with Jacques Brasserie (and yes, I admit to be partial to French food).
