The opening of the Second Avenue subway seemed to herald a new age for the Upper East Side, and an ongoing building boom further reinforced that impression. However, as the 2010s drew to close, a precipitous drop in sales prices came upon the area. Looking at the apartment price reductions of the past week show that listings in East Side neighborhoods are experiencing some of the largest discounts. Please be advised that all reductions shown below are cumulative rather than reflecting the most recent price change.
