Just slightly east of the beaten path, it offers tranquility and a great mix of pre- and post-war apartment buildings, town- houses and old brownstones. In the “old days,” Yorkville was home to many Irish, German and Hungarian immigrants, and you can still find some great ethnic restaurants and food shops in the area. East End Avenue is almost a separate neighborhood within Yorkville. It’s only 13 blocks long and is primarily residential. However, either on East End Avenue itself, or just a few steps off, you can find every service you need. While East End Avenue is home to many elegant buildings, the side streets offer affordable housing in convert- ed walk-up brownstones. It’s also home to Gracie Mansion, the mayor’s official residence, which sits right in the center of Carl Shurz Park on the East River (which is not really a river, but an estuary, it’s tidal). The Park is actually built on top of a section of the FDR (or East River) Drive. A beautiful promenade runs the length of the Park above the river, offer- ing a place to bike, jog and stroll. Summer days find the Park filled with sunbathers and by night, the promenade is a great place for a quiet, romantic walk. Asphalt Green is at the northern tip of the Park and houses a terrific sports facility with one of the city’s best swimming pools. One of the only drawbacks is that Yorkville is a considerable walk to the Lexington Avenue subway, and those who like being in the middle of the action may find this neighborhood too peaceful.
