Upper East
The Upper East Side is home to many of the wealthiest New Yorkers, as well as Museum Mile and world class shopping. It is a convenient location for exploring Central Park, as well as the many museums along Museum Mile. The famous Madison Avenue is home to many couture and designer shops, and even if you can't afford to buy anything, the window shopping is extraordinary. Park Avenue is lined with gorgeous pre-war apartment buildings and the gardening down the median make it a lovely place to stroll. The Upper East Side is also home to many of Manhattan's Luxury Hotels.

Lower East
Once the world's largest Jewish community, the Lower East Side is now best known for great shopping bargains and delicious food. Bargain hunters will enjoy the many shops along Orchard Street, which are well known for offering clothing and shoes at great prices. Along other neighborhood streets you can find great deals on housewares, lighting and linens. Sundays are the best weekend days for visiting the Lower East Side, as many shop owners close on Saturdays to observe the Sabbath. From pickles and knishes to bialys and corned beef sandwiches, many stores and restaurants feature delicious foods reflecting the Jewish heritage of the Lower East Side. The Lower East Side is also home to one of New York City's most impressive museums, the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. Housed in a former tenement building, the museum offers visitors a glimpse into neighborhood life during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
