This East Side News and commentary for New York's East Side

News, commentary, and community for New York's East Side. This East Side was, as they say, “born yesterday.” It was created to fill a serious gap in coverage of the Upper East Side and Midtown East, not just as destinations, but as neighborhoods. We cover the “waterfront,” from Fifth Avenue to the East River — from Yorkville to Sutton Place. And we are here to serve all the people with news and comment on culture, crime, fun, food, real estate, shopping and even the great outdoors (of which there’s a good deal). We have opinions which we won’t keep to ourselves. And we hope the neighbors will join the conversation. Contact us anytime at [email protected]
