"The Educational Arm of the Upper East Side"

East 82nd Street extends from East End Avenue to Fifth Avenue, where it hosts the magnificent Metropolitan Museum of Art which is affectionately referred to as ‘the Met’ by New Yorkers. This street which is essentially residential in character is littered with walkups, condos and co-op buildings though this street also hosts some of the best schools in the city like P.S.290 or the Manhattan New School which is located between First and Second Avenues and is a highly ranked establishment that is a prominent fixture on this street.

82nd Street also hosts, the relatively unknown but also highly ranked St Stephen of Hungary Catholic school which is attached to the St Stephen Parish that is also located here between York and East End Avenues.
The St Stephens Greenmarket which is held during the summer months is yet another major landmark of East 82nd Street though the street also hosts many restaurants and bars like Brady’s Bar, Wasabi Lobby, Gina La Forinaria and Flex Mussels(an excellent seafood restaurant) which provide residents of the area with several diverse dining options.
Pros
  • Leafy and quiet street
  • Great schooling options
  • The St Stephens Green Market
Cons
  • Area between First and Second Avenues is often shut during the daytime for school crossings
  • No real night life scene

"Restaurants designed to appeal to residents"

Walking around the Upper East Side, you will see a lot of restaurants. These definitely aren’t the trend setting places you tend to see further downtown, but rather they appeal to the old money residents of the neighborhood. One restaurant with an incredible atmosphere (chandeliers, wooden beamed ceilings, exposed interior brick walls) is Le Refuge. (You can probably tell by the name they offer, um, French cuisine. It’s really good.)

"East 82nd Street"

East 82nd street is a beautiful thoroughfare on the upper east side. As was taking my tour, it amazed me as how quickly the neighborhood's changed from now to rows of homes and the commonality and familiarity people seemed to have this street. I enjoyed that there no "bells and whistles" on this street, which seemed livable and inhabited by some really wonderful people.

East 82nd street is close to the following metro station: 6 at 77th street , and is accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is light and it is a good neighborhood for everyone.

"Beautiful UES Street from the Met to the East River"

Stretching from the Metropolitan Museum ("the Met") to the East River / Carl Shurtz Park, East 82nd is the quintessential Upper East Side street in Manhattan. More quiet than major double cross-streets East 79th and East 86th. East 82nd can differ block by block (but not greatly) - from gorgeous limestone buildings just off Fifth Avenue, three- to four-story brownstones, doorman rental and co-op buildings, and walk-up apartment buildings closer to First and York Avenues with a smattering of small businesses including laundry services, pet services/dog boarding and some of the Upper East Side's best restaurants (including Zocolo/Mexican - Sundays and Mondays = 1/2 price margaritas!, Le Refuge/French and Girasole/Italian (all between Lexington and Third Avenue) as well as King's Carriage House/continental. Food can be delivered from most neighborhood restaurants (including pizza, Italian, Chinese, etc). Fresh Direct delivers groceries, dry cleaners and laundry service establishments will pick up and drop off laundry (doorman buildings). For singles, there are a lot of nightlife and bar/pub options. For families, there are preschools (mostly private) as well as public and private elementary schools, middle schools and high schools. Everything is within walking distance! Stores include Duane Reade and CVS, Barnes & Noble, several Starbucks, small European-style cafes, audio-visual stores, larger electronics/music/movie stores such as Best Buy, antique shops and framing shops, and old-fashioned soda fountain (83rd and Lexington), and hair salons/nails/spas. Five blocks from Lexington and 82nd to the local # 6 station at East 77th Street and just four blocks to the 86th St local/express station for # 4/5 uptown (to Wall St) or downtown (to West 125th).
