Through its long history Yorkville has been a melting pot of various cultures and religions in search of a new beginning. “For much of the 19th and 20th centuries, Yorkville was a middle-to-working-class neighborhood, inhabited by many people of Czech, Slovak, Irish, Polish, German, Hungarian and Lebanese descent.” (Urban Areas)
Today Yorkville is undergoing a unique transformation. With the opening of the new 2nd Avenue subway, many Manhattan brokers see this neighborhood as Manhattan’s next residential frontier. “Yorkville will be the hottest Manhattan neighborhood and the sixth most popular neighborhood across the city in 2017” (StreetEasy).
With young professionals and students comes a social scene to match. Flying under the radar to many, Yorkville offers some of the best dining and social eating New York City has to offer. For residents of 333 East 83rd Street we recommend (but not limited to)
San Matteo Pizzeria e Cucina, UVA, Room 1705, Jones Wood Foundry, and The Auction House. Each of these offer a unique experience that reflect the neighborhood they reside in.
