Yorkville is a sub-section of the Upper East Side. Yorkville is bounded by the East River on the east, Third Avenue to the west and extends from 86th Street to 96th Street, where Spanish Harlem begins. The southern boundary has been the subject of debate with some claiming it extends to 72nd.
Yorkville was once filled with German immigrants but this demographic has been diluted by the many young people who began to move into the area in the 1980s. Because the neighborhood is part of the larger Upper East Side it also offers the same dining and shopping opportunities.
An attractive feature of this area is that apartment sales and rentals are more affordable than is the case with other parts of the city Yorkville contains many older, walk up buildings Because of the relatively lower rents, there are more young people here than in the ore expensive part of the Upper East Side, many attending such area colleges as Hunter College, Marymount College, or even City College or Columbia.
Yorkville is also where you will find Gracie Mansion on East 88th Street and Carl Shurz Park, a nearly 15 acre park running along the East River. This is a really nice spot for a stroll or to sit on a bench along the promenade and watch the yachts from Long island sail by.
Subway transportation is the 4,5, or 6 train on Lexington Avenue. You can also catch the M15 bus running along Second Avenue downtown or the M101, M102, or M103 running downtown along Lexington Avenue.
