The U.E.S. is the cultural center of New York, you are neighbors with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Frick Collection and The Guggenheim. But it’s more than iconic institutions, there are also superior art galleries, auction houses and more intimate museums. There are wonderful city secrets waiting to be discovered by discerning locals.
“I love the architecture on the U.E.S. — it evokes another era. It’s so nice to watch the kids crew their boats at the boating pond in Central Park. There’s a huge tree with low over-hanging branches near 85th and Fifth in the Park that’s a great picnic spot. And it’s great when the Linden trees are in bloom — they have such a beautiful fragrance.”
—Deborah Lutz, lecturer at Metropolitan Museum of Art
