Elegant and intimate, East End Avenue is a true residential enclave on the Upper East Side. Here, kids run carefree through sprinklers at Carl Schurz Park, couples stroll along the East River Esplanade, and neighborhood butchers have your prime meats ready and waiting. Stretching just 11 blocks, East End Avenue has the feel of a small town, one where the streets end at the park and residents enjoy the birds singing in the morning. It is this intimacy that makes the area an “urban suburb,” benefiting from the very best of the Upper East Side in a riverside location that affords a sense of peace and tranquility. Legendary buildings such as 120 East End Avenue (developed by Vincent Astor), 25 East End Avenue, 1 Gracie Square, and Henderson Place solidify the tree-lined neighborhood’s storied reputation as a home for beautiful pre-war architecture.
East End Avenue’s centerpiece is Carl Schurz Park, a 15-acre park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (architect of Central Park) that borders the avenue from 84th Street to 90th Street. Here, residents enjoy a playground, hockey rink, large and small dog runs and several sculpted gardens, all alongside the East River. In addition, East End Avenue is in close proximity to some of the country’s best private preparatory and public schools, green spaces such as John Jay Park and Asphalt Green, and numerous summer festivals. With a location just seconds from the FDR Drive, East End Avenue enjoys easy access to Midtown, the Hamptons, Westchester and metropolitan area airports. There is simply no better place to live in all of Manhattan.
