Top 10 High-Rise Condos on Third Avenue, Upper East Side

Third Avenue marks the geographic center of the Upper East Side and offers all of the neighborhood’s perks within a short walk. Some of the area’s tallest buildings rise next to low-rise pre-war apartment buildings. Upscale shopping and dining sits next to delis and bodegas. Central Park and the East River waterfront both lie within a few blocks in either direction. The Q and 4/5/6 trains run a block away on Second and Lexington avenues, respectively. Every building on the CityRealty list of the best high-rise condos on the Upper East Side’s Third Avenue offers a quintessential urban lifestyle in one of New York’s most beloved neighborhoods.

#3 - The Chatham, 181 East 65th Street

Condo in Lenox Hill

The signature classicist touch of architect and historian Robert A. M.

Stern, former Dean of the Yale School of Architecture, resides himself within the edifice that features a foyer clad in pink and beige marble, a full-time doorman, valet parking, and ample views of Central Park and the Midtown skyline from the upper floors.

#6 - The Siena, 188 East 76th Street

Condo in Lenox Hill

The Siena’s understated yet robust facade of niches, bay windows, and castle-like turrets at the top succeeds not only at the exterior, which ranks among the Upper East Side’s most elegant post-war designs, but also inside, where it creates unique layouts and bay windows in nearly every unit. A marble-floored and wood-trimmed lobby channels classic Upper East Side sophistication. Upstairs, parents can enjoy the outdoor terrace while watching through the large windows as the kids play in the ballpit-equipped play area inside.

#8 - The Brompton, 205 East 85th Street

Condo in Yorkville

Architect Robert A. M. Stern’s predilection for pre-war opulence is evident in the brick facade, delicate stone trim, large mullioned windows, and wood-paneled foyer that looks upon a colonnaded, Renaissance-style courtyard. By contrast, modern condo offerings manifest in an amenity package that includes a fitness center, children’s playroom, event space, and a roof deck.
