Is Yorkville The New Greenpoint?

“Yorkville the new Greenpoint?” Recently featured in the Observer, The Upper East Side is up against Brooklyn and came up as the clear winner when it comes to just about everything.  

Upper East Side is quickly becoming the cool alternative to Brooklyn thanks to the outer borough’s skyrocketing rents. While Brooklyn has long held onto its hipster persona, The Upper East Side has been undergoing a makeover of its own the last few years with restaurants such as Boqueria, Mighty Quinns and Jones Wood’s Foundry and great drinking spots like Seamstress. The residential sector is finally keeping up with the drinking and dining scene as The Rose Modern, York Avenue’s first new rental building in decades has recently started leasing with Studios from $2,800, one bedrooms from $4,335, two bedrooms from $6,525 and three bedroom penthouses from $13,500. The building rented up over 40% of its inventory in the first month on the market!

Add this to the neighborhood’s long standing reputation for having some of the best schools in the city and its close proximity to the best parks, Yorkville can no longer be ignored.
