NYC Luxury Rentals: East Side vs West Side

East Side NYC Luxury Rentals in Murray HillThere has been a long standing debate as to what side of Manhattan is better – the East Side or the West Side. There’s also a debate on the Upper and Lower Sides too, but that is an article for another time. If you tell an East Sider that you don’t like the East Side, he’ll say “so, who cares?”  If you tell a West Sider that you don’t like the West Side, he’ll say “So, you think the East Side is better?”

The difference between the East and West Sides stems from a number of topics including mass transit access and the Theater.  Yes, this sounds crazy.  Today, a key difference between the East and West Sides is that the East Side has one subway line (the Lexington Avenue Line 4, 5 & 6 trains) and the West Side has two (the Eighth Avenue A/C/E and B/D lines and the Seventh Avenue 1, 2 & 3 lines). When theaters settled in the Times Square area, it made the West Side a natural bedroom community for actors and other theater bohemians.

In terms of cost of living, people, prices and vibe, explains it as so…

East Side:

  • Lower housing costs
  • Age skews a bit older
  • Subways: 4/5/6
  • Parks: Central Park, East River Promenade, Carl Shultz Park

West Side:

  • Higher housing costs
  • Age skews a bit younger
  • Subways: 1/2/3, A/C, B/D
  • Parks: Central Park, Riverside Park, Hudson River Park
  • More “happening” nightlife/restaurant scene

To surmise, if you are a resident of Manhattan, the East Side offers lower housing costs which is perfect when it comes to East Side NYC luxury rentals. There’s a new apartment building that has opened in the East Side – House 39. House 39 is located in the Murray Hill neighborhood and makes luxury living possible for the not so rich. The glass skyscraper offers a state-of-the-art fitness center and many other resort style amenities including a 24/7 concierge, live-in manager, private storage, rooftop pool with indoor and outdoor hot tubs, fitness center, and a yoga studio. Residents looking to curl up and relax with a good book can take advantage of the library or unwind with some skee ball, ping-pong, or a game of pool in the arcade. For the children, there’s an outdoor playground and a children’s playroom.
