The Metropolitan Museum of Art
With the construction of Central Park in the second half of the 19th century, the Upper East Side became—and remains—the most fashionable (or, at least, richest) New York City neighborhood.
During the Gilded Age, Fifth Avenue became New York’s gold coast, and the streets are lined with former mansions, prestigious boutiques, private clubs, and—along “Millionaire’s Mile”—some of the city's grandest apartment buildings.
Featured on the tour: The lost Vanderbilt mansions of Fifth Avenue * Grand Army Plaza and the Plaza Hotel * the Metropolitan Club * the Knickerbocker Club * the Central Park Arsenal * Temple Emanu-El *
