The Upper East Side is well known for its high-end shopping, and some of the best retail in the city is located just steps from the front door. There are many gourmet eateries nearby including the popular Nello, La Goulue and Amaranth. Residents can also enjoy a leisurely stroll through nearby Central Park, Museum Mile or midtown, all of which are located within as 5 minute walk. 66th Street is a Central Park through street, which does keep a high level of traffic around the building during the day, but it usually dissipates in the evening.
