A solid mix of young professionals, families, both middle class and affluent, in a somewhat ‘suburban’ area that retains its UES flavor through the buildings and abundant greenery but with a distinct hint of Yorkville’s historic roots.
Yorkville hosts many of New York’s premier schools as well as Gracie Mansion, the official home of the New York City mayor.
Many pre-war walk-ups with Romanesque influence, new high-rises and some stunning French Gothic-style churches mark Yorkville.
Best Kept Secret
Carl Schurz Park, located around Gracie mansion, is a beautiful and relatively quiet area frequented by locals for its serenity.
The typical UES mix of commuters, nannies tending to children, and patrons of local boutiques and restaurants.
Incredibly quiet by New York standards, making it ideal for families or those unwilling to deal with noise pollution.
