The Upper East Side by Any Other Name…

This chunk of the 70s east of Third Avenue doesn’t have a moniker like other parts of the Upper East Side. It’s not close-knit Yorkville due north, nor exclusive Carnegie Hill to the northwest. Since it’s east of Lexington, it doesn’t get the ultra-exclusive Gold Coast label, and even the eastern border of Lenox Hill is still disputed. But who needs a nickname, anyway? Convenient to transportation (buses on Second Avenue, subway on Lex), but not so expensive as to be unreachable, this area has everything from prewar co-ops to postwar condos to new construction, along with all the retail establishments you’ll need, from grocery stores to nail salons and the ubiquitous bank branches. See for yourself this weekend. After the jump, a list of properties hosting open houses. —S. Jhoanna Robledo
