"Mixed Use in Character"

East 80th Street extends eastwards from East End Avenue until Fifth Avenue and Central Park. This street like many other streets of the Upper East Side features a real estate landscape of historic pre-war co-op buildings, condominiums that feature luxury and rentals and stunning, expensive townhouses (especially the 80th Street houses which are a row of attached townhouses that are situated between Lexington Avenue and Park Avenue).

80 th street which is a mixed use street also hosts many commercial and educational establishments like an outpost of the City University of New York, the Caedmon Montessori School, The York Avenue Preschool, An Enterprise car rental outlet, parking garages and popular restaurants like the Divino wine bar and restaurant, Brasserie Julien, Cascabel Taqueria, H&H Midtown Bagels East and Le Rendezvous Wine Bar. In fact Le Rendezvous Wine Bar ranks as one of my favorite bars in the city for its friendly service and great selection of wines from around the world. So happy that there such an elegant but casual, adult place like this my neck of the woods which otherwise offers a preponderance of loud, frat bars which offer barrels of beer, live sports telecasts and sickeningly sweet, weird colored cocktails. Also located on the junction of East 80th Street and Second Avenue is the Lester's clothing store whose stocks of apparel are especially popular with pre-teens and tweens.
The M79 which is one of main transport options of the Upper East Side has its last stop on East 80th Street.
Pros
  • Quiet, tranquil, tree lined street
  • Stunning architecture

"Quiet, residential street"

This residential street on the Upper East Side doesn’t have much to offer visitors to the city, so if you’re a tourist it’s a good idea to check out other streets in the neighborhood. What this street does have to offer is a range of apartment buildings, recommended for middle aged professionals and retirees.

"Today For You, Tomorrow For Me"

Gracie Mews is the highlight of this street. It's a wonderful diner perfect for lunch, brunch, dinner, and a midnight snack. I saw many groups of friends sharing ice cream sundaes, older couples sharing coffee, and many married people splitting the check! I like the calmness of the place, and its clientel lack the general upper east side demeanor, Another highlight of 80th street is Halian Village, which also provides delicious food of all varieties at a reasonable price.

East 80th 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 families, couples, and retirees.
