Top 10 Apartment Buildings on the Upper East Side's East End Avenue

East End Avenue runs past Carl Schurz Park, where the Mayor’s Gracie Mansion faces the East River. The park, coupled with a deck that covers the FDR Drive from 81st to 89th Streets, provides direct river access and views to the upscale residential enclave in the Upper East Side’s northeast corner. CityRealty reviews the best apartment buildings in East End, where elite apartments and quiet sidewalks sit within a short walk of the Second Avenue subway and the bustle of Yorkville.

#1 - 10 Gracie Square

Co-op in Yorkville

10 Gracie Square is East End’s only building that faces both the East River and Carl Schurz Park, making for unmatched views from its large windows and tree-lined terraces. The penthouse terrace nestles within an elaborate limestone pinnacle that makes a tasteful skyline statement. Various apartments feature bay windows, vaulted ceilings, and fireplaces. Over the years, the elite co-op has attracted socialites Gloria Vanderbilt and Brooke Astor, author Jean Stein, and media magnate Steven Ross. More recently, former President Barack Obama expressed interest in securing a unit for himself and his family.

#6 - 1 East End Avenue

Co-op in Yorkville

Architects Pleasants Pennington and Albert W. Lewis transformed an irregular, narrow plot by the East River into an architectural masterpiece, where limestone panels and copper-trimmed bay windows decorate a staggered facade of orange brick. The 15-story building averages just two units per floor, which boast sunlit interiors thanks to the building’s slender profile. The top level holds a river-facing, shrubbery-lined terrace.


#7 - The Yorkgate, 25 East End Avenue

Co-op in Yorkville

The 16-story co-op at 25 East End Avenue comes from the architecture firm of Cross & Cross, which is responsible for some of New York’s greatest buildings from the pre-war era. Dark red brick pleasantly contrasts with Renaissance detailing carved from light-colored stone. Pyramidal urns accent the corners at the rooftop terrace, which circles an ornate penthouse. Over half of the building’s units look upon the East River.
