    The Upper East Side Real Estate Market: 2009-Today
    8.4.2014

Given the perceived stability of the Upper East Side, one might assume investors to expect limited price-appreciation. However, in some metrics, the Upper East Side has outpaced the overall Manhattan market over the past five years.View Article
