"Bucolic charm in the heart of NYC"

This tree-lined row of period brownstones is among the most scenic areas in the city. Running east from the Old World family neighborhood of Carnegie Hill, with its mom-and-pop ice cream parlours, boutiques, and low-key restaurants, to the more affordable area of Yorkville, East 94th Street has much to offer for families seeking an ideal area in which to raise children. The city's best schools - among them Chapin, Brearley, Nightingale, Spence, and St. Bernard's - are all located in the area, as is the popular Hunter Playground on Madison Ave and 95th Street. While dining and shopping options are mostly limited to the pricey patisseries and European restaurants on Madison Avenue, or the big box retailers in the Lexington and 86th Street areas, East 94th Street nevertheless provides a wealth of culture around 5th Avenue, where the street ends near some of the city's best-loved museums and, of course, it's most famous park. Transport can be found on the 4-5-6 trains on Lexington Avenue at 96th Street, frequent up- or downtown buses on almost all avenues, and the 96th Street crosstown bus,
  • Beautiful historic buildings
  • A peaceful neighborhood feel
  • A limited restaurant scene east of Madison
  • No nightlife scene
