"Only in the Upper East Side"

This street is a bit away from it all, and probably the biggest landmarks it offers are a few university hospitals (of Columbia and Cornell), and Rockefeller University. York Ave doesn’t even begin until East 59th Street, so it is a true Upper East Side street (seeing as it doesn’t go anywhere else), and the vibe definitely represents the neighborhood – it’s full of tall residential buildings and little mom-and-pops places to eat.

"Gorgeous but inconvenient."

York Avenue has nothing for tourists to see or do but it's a nice residential area of the city and it caters well to it's residents. It is quiet and picturesque but it is inconvenient for commuters. When the subway was planned it seems as though they forgot the area existed and thus it's a rather long hike to the nearest subway. In the bitter cold of winter residents will likely curse their very existence. But if you consider yourself a snow bunny than by all means, trek away.

"Quiet and Calm in the City"

York Avenue stretches down the east side of Manhattan and has managed to beat back commercialization. The area is largely residential but it is also home to some of the leading hospitals. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is located between 68th and 69th streets. The rest of the area is pretty residential which offers a nice retreat from the hustle of city life. Like other residential areas York Avenue, in certain spots, lacks the public transportation that most city dwellers have grown accustom too. I personally think the retreat from the noise of regular city life is an acceptable trade-off to the lack of public transit, but many may not agree. Those looking to move into the area should consider the transportation issue before grabbing the packing boxes.
