Driving Through the Upper East Side
Hop into your Upper East Side rental car and head straight for the Museum Mile, a dense stretch of cultural institutions along Fifth Avenue between East 82nd and East 105th streets. You'll find the Guggenheim, Museum of the City of New York, Jewish Museum, and world-famous Metropolitan Museum of Art, just to name a few. After filling up on art and culture, continue down Fifth Avenue to do a little shopping. All the way to the east side of the Upper East Side, on the banks of the East River, you'll find Gracie Mansion, the mayor's official residence in Carl Schurz Park. On Tuesdays, you can tour its interior. Of course, with Central Park this close, be sure to explore its rich network of paths and discover hidden statues and picnic spots.
