The Prettiest and Best Streets on the Upper East Side

If there’s one thing I get asked more than anything, it’s where are the best streets on the Upper East Side to walk and find all of those pretty townhouses and buildings that I (and many others!) post on Instagram. So today I thought I’d share a few of the prettiest streets on the Upper East Side. In general, I always love to walk in the upper 60s, the 70s, the 80s, and the low 90s between Lex and Park, Park and Madison, and Madison and Fifth. That’s a lot of ground to cover, so here are more specific streets where, in my opinion, you can see some of the prettiest houses on the Upper East Side!

63rd between Madison and Fifth


64th between Park and Madison


67th between Madison and Fifth


70th between Lex and Park


73rd between Lex and Park


74th between Park and Madison


76th between Madison and Fifth


78th between Second and Third


78th between Park and Lex


81st between Third and Lex


81st between Park and Madison


82nd between Third and Lex (amazing for Christmas and Halloween!)


82nd between Madison and Fifth


93rd and Madison


94th between Madison and Fifth

These are just a few standouts – honestly there are a lot more but it’s a lot of work finding all of the photos and streets lol, so I figured I’d narrow it down to favorites. Like I mentioned, you can’t go wrong just walking between Fifth and Madison in the 60s, 70s, and 80s! A lot of these types of photos are available in my Etsy shop, and of course you can follow along and see more on Instagram always. I plan to continue this blog series and share my favorites in the West Village and Brooklyn Heights, as well as my favorites for Christmas decorations!
