"Life on the Upper East Side"

We've lived in an apartment between 2nd and 3rd streets for about 2 years. We love it up here, it's not cheap but you get the best shopping (only a few blocks to Bloomingdales) and Borders Books is on the corner of E 57th and Park Ave. The expensive (tourist) shops around 5th Ave are also nearby. Neighbors keep to themselves. Favorite restaurants for us are Daniel (60 E 65th) and Tao (out the back of the Four Seasons Hotel). We also have a once a month dinner at Peacock Alley (at the Waldorf Astoria). Central Park is also walkable.
