The Bars of the Upper East Side

The Upper East Side of New York City is a Manhattan neighborhood that lies between Central Park and the East River and goes from E. 59th St. to E. 96th St. Points of interest include Central Park, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Guggenheim, The Whitney Museum, Hunter College, Gracie Mansion and Carl Schurz Park.  The long awaited Second Avenue Subway opened Jan. 1, 2017, with stops at 72nd, 86th & 96th St.
