Description
Yorkville, named after York Avenue, is located between 96th and 79th Streets and to the east of Third Avenue. This neighborhood in Manhattan originated in the early 1840’s when German and Czech immigrants, among others, settled in the area. It used to be famous for its dance halls and beer halls until they were gradually replaced by residential high rise buildings and other construction in the area.

The one fairly major drawback of the Yorkville neighborhood is that it isn’t very near any subway stations at all, with the closest one being the Lexington Ave. line. As compensation, there’s good cross town bus service to be found on 79th, 86th and 96th Streets so it’s not so bad really.

Yorkville’s largest retail area can be found between First and Lexington Avenues on 86th Street. There aren’t any parks to speak of however the Carl Schurz Park on the waterfront isn’t too far away on the east end of 86th Street at East End Avenue. The park is where the Mayor Lives in Gracie Mansion and it overlooks the East River and a few major bridges to the north.
A number of the Upper East Side’s swankiest apartment houses are located just near or bordering on the Yorkville Carl Schurz Park area. For example, you have 120 East Avenue, Ten Gracie Square and the private Chapin and Brearley School all close by. This makes the area one of the most desirable in the city people with families.
