About the Museum Mile Festival

New York City is filled to the brim with art in many mediums. There’s a dense history of visual art and architecture. No matter where you turn, there is innovation and creation.
It’s a world of people who have been doing amazing things for many years, and you can experience as much of it as possible along Museum Mile when you live in one of the Upper East Side condos at 40 East End.
In particular, one annual event each June is a must-see for any who are lucky enough to be in the area. Join in the thrilling journey of the Museum Mile Festival.

What is the Museum Mile Festival?

The Museum Mile is actually an official term. New York City has designated the area of iconic Fifth Avenue, from 82nd to 105th St. with the spectacular name due to the overwhelming number of highly-trafficked museums.
There are multiple museums on almost every block of this section of Fifth Avenue. Visitors naturally go from one to the other, which helped lead into the Museum Mile Festival.
On a special day, usually in June, visitors can flock to all participating museums on Museum Mile for free for a short period of time.
One after the other, all museums entrances are free to any visitor who wants to immerse themselves in the rich culture of Museum Mile. Whether you are visiting from afar or staying at one of the nearby luxury New York City condominiums, a visit is always worthwhile.

When Did it Begin and Why?

During the financial crisis of the 1970’s, New York city museum curators sought to draw traffic to the region and to promote the arts. They collectively agreed to open the doors to everyone, bringing down the curtain of museum culture.
It drew an astounding audience, from Harlem to the Village, the outer-boroughs to the whole of the northeast U.S. The Museum Mile Festival became a major event for Upper East Side.
Although with its regular fans, the event draws many to Upper East Side for the very first time. Even with no previous knowledge of NYC art, visitors leave with a rich understanding of it and the city’s culture.

Which Museums are Participating?

Visit any of the many participating NYC museums right from nearby Upper East Side condos. Roughly 6-9 different museums participate annually, all within a few blocks of each other. Museums which often participate include the Jewish Museum, the Solomon R. Guggenheim, and the Museum of the City of New York.
Perhaps the biggest inclusion to the Museum Mile Festival is the grand Metropolitan Museum of Art. There’s over two million works of art across 17 different departments and a multitude of mediums.
It’s a vast collection, and one that can provide a truly life-changing perspective on New York City art. This stop alone could be worth the trip to Upper East Side, but it’s the other participating museums that take it well over the edge.
Now, not far from our Upper East Side condos at 40 East End, you can experience the artistic range of New York City all in one pivotal strip of Fifth Avenue.

The Guggenheim and Luxury New York

Our luxury New York City condominiums at 40 East End are synonymous with the art scene in Manhattan. Located on the borough’s Upper East Side, where era-spanning fine art reigns supreme, our residences neighbor some of the most renowned museums in the world.

One of these is The Guggenheim, famous for its Manet, Gaugin, Kandinsky, and many works of abstract art. The Guggenheim began as a private collection and turned into a public museum in the mid-1990s. It was originally known as The Museum of Non-Objective Art, an ode to its founder’s love for the shapes, colors, and forms that come together on the canvas, creating abstract paintings.

Today, the institution is an essential part of the New York lifestyle, attracting art lovers from Upper East Side condominiums, downtown high-rises, and the surrounding boroughs.

Just a stone’s throw from our luxury Manhattan condos, the Guggenheim is the perfect weekend treat. Here’s what to see and do and even eat at the Guggenheim:


The Guggenheim’s permanent collection is home to a large selection of modernist masterpieces.

This collection is the centerpiece of Upper East Side art, with influences from 20th century Europe and Russia. Many of the works in this collection were selected by Solomon R. Guggenheim himself, the museum’s founder and namesake. The founding collection includes about 600 works that were gifted to the museum by the owner.

Other exhibits include the works of the entire collection of a New York art dealer, a display of post-war abstract art, and the Bohen Foundation Gift, which features about 275 film, photo, and other new media works.

The Guggenheim also has rotating exhibits that are definitely worth checking out

luxury New York City condominiums

Keeping up with the Joneses, the Guggenheim now has its very own app. From here, you can plug into self-guided audio tours and other regular programming.


While the art might be the meat of the Guggenheim, there are plenty of side attractions to go with it. This institution evades its role as museum, and into its role as education center, cinema, theater.

Go to a concert, see a live orchestra, and or view a film screening – all at the Guggenheim, less than 10 blocks from our Upper East Side condominium. On the weekend, The Guggenheim offers Saturday sketch classes for both adults and children.


The Guggenheim’s restaurants are so good, you’ll want to visit this museum just for the food.

Café 3 serves light lunches and snacks just big enough to tide you over until dinner. Grab a cappuccino and a pastry, or enjoy one of the many fresh sandwiches and salads they offer. If you’re keen to sit down, dine at The Wright, a weekend-only all-American brunch spot that will satisfy your craving for breakfast – just a little later in the day.

Our luxury New York City condominiums at 40 East End are perfect for both seasoned museum-goers and those new to the arts. Art and culture are one of the main draws to Upper East Side condominiums, where you can be at eye-level with some of the world’ finest paintings in no time flat.

Visiting the Museum of the City of New York in the Upper East Side

Museum Mile along Fifth Avenue is located near 40 East End’s luxury New York East side condos and is home to some of the most impressive and important museums in the world, including the Museum of the City of New York.
With its grand holiday parties, and explorations of what’s happening right now through the lens of the past, the Museum of the City of New York unabashedly celebrates all that makes NYC culture and art so essential.

New York at its Core Exhibition

The museum is, for the most part, an ode to New York City culture. This is defined with the New York at its Core permanent exhibition, which was opened in November of 2016 and took 5 years of planning and $10 million.
This portion of the museum collects photographs, statues, art, memorabilia, handwritten notes, and so much more, to create a captivating and extensive history of New York City.
It begins with the small Dutch village that started it all and continues with the mass arrival of influential residents from many countries who each contributed to the bustling metropolis NYC is today. The exhibition showcases artifacts and images to create a pictorial celebration of virtually everything that made NYC the “Capital of the World” in the last 200 years.
Many art and history enthusiasts living in East Side condos have visited the exhibition for its unique exploration of innovation and capturing of the human energy that defined how NYC became a city unlike anything else. A third of the space of the 8,000 foot exhibition is dedicated to the future of NYC.

Temporary Exhibitions

The Museum of the City of New York near our luxury New York condos has the consistent theme of allowing us to view the present through the past, and this is clearly reflected in the Rebel Women showcase. For the remainder of 2018, the hall takes true stories of female New York City rebels and supports to the argument that they were the real leaders.
19th century New York was one of the first destinations in which women made major strides against gender oppression. Though the war against repression was being fought in many regions, New York City was home to a brilliant and grand female uprising decades before the rest of the world. Female activists would speak in public, hold meetings, wear non-Victorian and racy clothing, and invest. The hall features garments, photographs, and audio recordings to bring these stories to life.
This temporary exhibit is complemented by the Stanley Kubrick Photographic Lens showcase as well as the Germ City exhibition hall until April 2019. Germ City looks at the crossroads between microbes and people in the world’s busiest metropolis.

East Side condos

Aside from these temporary exhibits, you can always find some inspiring museum additions, including a suit worn at George Washington’s Inaugural Ball, manuscripts from Eugene O’Neill, and over 400 glass negatives from the master documentarian, Jacob Riis.
The museum was founded in 1923 and features about 190,000 different objects on average. Adults are $18, seniors and students are $12, and under 19 is free. It is open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
This collection comprehensively covers science, fashion, history, and art from New York City. This museum near 40 East End’s luxury New York condos is where these worlds collide in perfection, all through the empowering and poignant lens of New York City.

The Charm of the Upper East Side

The Upper East Side has long been known for its distinct classiness and for being a top residential destination for NYC’s wealthy and elite. Although many think of the neighborhood’s old money image and quiet, conservative charm when the name is mentioned, there is much more to it than that.
It’s where residents enjoy long-running casual to fine dining culinary establishments that rival the best in other boroughs and the thriving art culture of Museum Mile.
A trendy youth-driven renaissance is also occurring in the eastern side of the neighborhood where the Upper East Side condominiums at 40 East End are located. There is a lot to explore and love in this famous urban expanse.

A Calmer and Quieter Vibe

Although First and Second Avenue are often bustling with activity due to the large concentration of restaurants, bistros, coffee shops and sports bars, there is a calmer, quieter and more reserved vibe along many of the tree lined residential streets, providing some much-needed relief from the bustle.
The luxury Manhattan condos in the neighborhood offer the balance of being within a close destination of some of Manhattan’s most coveted attractions, from the Guggenheim to Central Park, while also offering access to well-maintained clean sidewalks, lovely historic architecture and manicured greenery.
This calmer ambiance offers a desirable residential destination for young professionals, influencers, artists, entrepreneurs and others who seeking something a little different from the typical fast paced New York lifestyle.

A Mix of New and Old Culinary Establishments

There’s something unique about entering one of the long-running restaurants that have helped to shape the Upper East Side into what it is today – such as the Heidelberg Restaurant or Schaller & Weber in Yorkville.

Upper East Side condominiums

This pair of restaurants still stand as a distinct representation of the German influence on Yorkville and are one of the top places to enjoy authentic cuisine from the country including bratwurst, house-made pates, pretzels, mustards, cold cuts and more.
Newer destinations such as Boqueria Spanish Tapas Bar provide modern European flair, offering Catalan cuisine made with seasonal local ingredients and the creativity of passionate chefs like Marc Vidal.
Here is where you can capture the vibrant energy of a Spanish tapas bar with perfectly made small plates covering Pintxo de Carne (steak skewers, hazelnut romesco, salse verde) to homemade chorizo, Colorado lamb meatballs and rotating happy hour specials.
This of course is just a small sampling of the impressive variety of old-school and newer culinary establishments that can be found right outside the door of Upper East Side condominiums.

Classic Art, A Fascinating Cuisine Culture and More

Item Highlights

Some highlights include work by Andy Warhol and Amedeo Modigliani. You can find special and hand-selected collections of Jewish masters discovering, refining, and defining their oeuvre.
The curators make sure to represent Jewish culture from various countries and time periods. For example, the Archaeology Zone looks at the world over 5,000 years ago, and how the earliest documentation helped shape playgrounds, palaces, and cities of history. The Chagall, Lissitzky, Malevich exhibit takes a focused look at Russian avant-garde masters in the early 20th century. The specificity of the exhibit is one of the museum’s defining traits.
The Scenes from the Collection exhibit is the current main showcase, and it is expected to continue for years to come. The entire third floor encompasses about 600 works, from classic antiquities to modern works of art. It represents the parallels between Judaism 4,000 years ago and how it is represented today. Visitors can reshape their own perspective and receive a broad look at the spirituality, both changed and unchanged, across the millennia.

Upper East Side condos

Some rooms will change annually, but the core of the floor will remain the same celebration of Jewish history and art.

The museum is located at 1109 5th Ave & E 92nd St, just a few minutes from our luxury Manhattan condos. The cost is $18 for adults and $12 for seniors. Children 18 and under are free.
No place in the city, and perhaps the world, more definitely spans the entire spectrum of the cultural influence of the Jewish people with such a careful eye.

Three Parks You Need to Visit in the Upper East Side

When you live uptown in East Side condominiums, your weekends probably involve wining and dining, seeing a Broadway show, perusing galleries, and, of course, taking a stroll in Central Park.

But, this famous park isn’t the only green space in the city that’s worth a visit. In fact, New York City has about 28,000 acres of public parkland – and Central Park is just three percent of it.

Below are just a few of the many Upper East Side parks that are worth a weekend jaunt from your new residence at our luxury New York condos.

luxury new york condo

Carl Schurz Park

Perhaps one of the city’s best-kept secrets, this scenic park runs along East River, between 84th and 90th streets. Because it’s a mere half-hour trip from Manhattan, it’s the perfect escape from the bustling streets of the city.

In the summertime, enjoy the bright, fragrant seasonal blooms that decorate the park. In the fall, enjoy the crisp air and the cool breeze that comes from the Hudson.

This is an excellent park equipped with age-specific playgrounds, as well as basketball and handball courts. There is an off-leash dog run, as well as plenty of space for your pets to roam. Be sure to bring a snack or two from your East Side condominiums kitchen, as there’s no food sold on the grounds nor at the park entrance.

John Jay Park

A few blocks south of Carl Schurz lies another park with a name: John Jay. This is yet another within five minutes of our luxury New York condos at 40 East End.

This community park is a popular place, so be prepared for company. If you’re looking for a Sunday stroll or an afternoon of reading, this may not be the park for you.

The park has everything an active child – or adult, for that matter – could want: basketball and handball courts, playgrounds for different ages, outdoor gym equipment, and even a pool.

There is also a wading pool and splash pad for kids to enjoy during the summer months, as well as tables for picnics. Our East Side condominiums have many amenities available, but nothing can replace spending a summer day outside at the park.

East River Esplanade

The East River Esplanade runs north-south along the river between 36th and 41st streets. The municipal park was acquired by the city in 1939 when the highway is built, and is an important part of the city’s greenway. East River Esplanade begins a number of blocks south of East Side condominiums, stretching a few miles along the water.

This park is the perfect place to have a picnic, shoot a few hoops, try your hand at handball, and watch while the kids hang from monkey bars and zoom down the slides. The attached path is a fantastic bike trail that offers miles of smooth, flat sailing along the river, just behind luxury New York condos.

While there are plenty of things to do in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, every so often we need a reminder of the importance of getting outside – whether you’re new to luxury New York condos or a city lifer.
