"Love the Nieghborhood but Watch Out for 85 East End Avenue"

Great pocket neighborhood in Manhattan where you have the quiet and tranquility of a suburb, but are still in the midst of all the action with a quick cab ride away. People are friendly and the park that services this area is great for big and small dogs alike.
  • Wide tree lined avenue which is quite spotless and lined with grand co-op buildings which host families who have lived there for generations.
  • The biggest con of East End Avenue is that it is four blocks away from the nearest subway though it is served by the M79 crosstown bus.

"Beautiful street away from the city (though it's still in the city)"

This is a mostly residential street – tourists hardly ever wander so far away from the action. But – if you’re looking for a quiet street that offers fancy Upper East Side apartment buildings, this is the street for you. Even if you have to walk a bit to get back to reality, it’s probably worth it for people who really value a quiet neighborhood (which is increasing difficult to find in Manhattan).

"Classy and Upscale Address"

East End Avenue, like it's counterpart on the West End is classy and elegant. The condos that line the street are absolutely stunning. The street sits right across from Carl Schurz Park and offers residents a nice retreat from the hectic city life. Like most areas on the far east side of the city there is not much in the way of fun in the area and transportation can be difficult at best. Gristede's offers residents shopping convenience. The real allure is the quiet atmosphere so people looking for more than a nice stroll and classy living space probably will be greatly disappointed.

"Very high class living"

I used to babysit two girls on East end Avenue a few years ago and I was amazed at the condo they lived in. It was a 3 bedroom, condo where each of the 3 rooms had their own bathroom. though the space was not huge, it was very classy. The master bedroom had the bathroom with the jacuzzi, and the other room had its own bathroom inside the room.

Even as you went outside you were amazed at the view of central park, which was right across the street, since this was the street that separated the east and the west side. The residents here are very friendly, which has been a surprise to me, growing up in a New York where most people just stick to themselves and do not say hi to you unless they know you.

East end avenue became my dream place to love in if I had stayed in the city. It is walking distance from the major train stations yet far enough back where you had a view of the vast green that makes up central park.
