The Upper East Side is a neighborhood of Manhattan that has gained international fame from movies and TV shows like Gossip Girl and Sex & the City. It’s also home to iconic landmarks such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 998 Fifth Ave, and the Cherokee Apartments. We will dive into the history of the area: particularly how it transformed from a poor ghetto to the home of NYC’s wealthy & elite.
