Things to do in the Upper East Side, Manhattan

There are many things to see and do whilst staying in self catering accommodation in the Upper East Side. Along one edge of the neighbourhood is Central Park. Central Park is somewhere that many visitors like to spend some time. At 843 acres Central Park is large and is a lovely place to enjoy a walk along the extensive walking trails, a cycle or a skate, or just sit and admire the lakes and ponds, or better yet go ice skating on them in the winter! For children there are 37 playgrounds in Central Park so the kids have no chance to get bored here! Other activities include boulder climbing, going for a carriage horse ride, or during the summer watch one of the concerts that take place here frequently or enjoy performances of the New York Shakespeare Festival.

For something different take the Roosevelt Island Tramway. This is a cable car that runs from the Upper East Side across the river to Roosevelt Island. Get off at Roosevelt Island where you can board the Red Bus which, for a minimal fare, transports passengers around the island.

In the end it turned into a celebration of 3 generations travelling across the US – my Mum that joined us from Cape Town, South Africa (70 years old), my daughter (17 years) and myself (44 years). We started in Los Angele and visited San Francisco, Las Vegas, Memphis, Orlando and last NYC. As my daughter and I reminisce about our amazing time in New York City, we are always brought back to the lovely location, apartment, and service we received at ‘the Apartments on 5th Avenue.’ Dubbed the Museum Mile, we felt like absolute royalty. I always loved the beautiful Brownstone Townhouses that I would see on TV shows however, I can assure you that not one of them compares to this Luxurious Limestone Mansion. It was quite late when we arrived in NYC, and we were all very tired after travelling around the country. We were pleasantly surprised with the transport Julia had arranged for us – a white stretch limo! Julia greeted us as we got to the apartments, and she noticed that my Mum was feeling quite ill with the flu. After showing us the apartment that we originally were keen on and had firmly requested (Deluxe Terraced Suite), Julia suggested that we choose between it and another apartment that she felt would work better now that Mum was sick… It turned out to be a blessing. Indeed in the ‘White Loft’ that Julia suggested, Mum could rest more comfortably in her own room and all of us could have separate sleeping spaces. The ‘White Loft’ faces the street and we absolutely loved it! For the first 6 days mom was unwell and stayed in. So watching from the window people walking the dogs, watching the snow fall, hearing all the sounds of the city – those memories are still vivid for us today as they were then. The location is absolutely unbeatable. With Central Park, many Museums, The Met and Madison Avenue Shops just a few steps away. Taxis were readily available in front of the apartment, which made sightseeing and shopping a breeze. We went for walks late at night and we never felt unsafe. The weather was freezing so it was so lovely to come home to a perfectly heated apartment every day. It is the little things that they do – like your laundry every day and the apartment fully serviced, it is like staying in a hotel, with much more room and personalised service.

A friend of mine who had previously stayed here recommended this townhouse. It look perfect, exactly what I was looking for. From my initial contact to departure, Julia was wonderful; very responsive and professional. She assisted with making several special accommodation and was easy to work with. My boss and her family have very particular dietary preferences; I gave Julia an extensive and specific grocery list of items for their stay. No problem, Julia took care of that and made sure the kitchen was stocked with the requested items prior to their arrival. Since my boss and her family were getting in late, Julia made sure the beds were all turned down and ready for the children to slide right into. My boss and her family were greeted upon arrival by a live-in staff member even though it was 2 AM. The following morning Julia made sure to personally greet my boss and her family, and made herself personally available if needed. My boss was very pleased with the townhouse. The townhouse was everything she envisioned; beautifully and tastefully decorated turn of the 19th century house, with high ceilings. There also was a very pretty courtyard, nice and spacious terrace. She was quite impressed and happy with my selection. Julia's pre-arrival packet was so thorough and helpful. She really has thought of everything. If you want a worry-free, safe, quite, centrally located, beautiful place to stay, look no further. This townhouse will not disappoint.

We have been to NYC many times and it was great to stay in a neighborhood and really get a feel for the city. Julia sent lots of ideas for neighborhood restaurants and grocery shopping and every one that we tried was great! Julia also went out of her way to help us we had adult children coming in for the weekend and had a dinner that night and she was kind enough to meet them and let them in when they arrived. The apartment is very comfortable and it was great to be able to cook breakfast in the morning in the apartment. We really enjoyed being so close to the park for mornings walks and the subway stop is close and very convenient to get around the city. It was a great 5 day stay.
