Walked four blocks to this historic site hidden among the high rises. Experienced a wonderful 2.5 hour tour that explained that this was a country inn in 1825. Great imports from China. Take your time to experience the ambiance. Place has 200 year old ornaments....More

I have been coming into New York City for almost fifty years and I never heard of the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum, a interesting little historic building on East 61st Street by the East River.

Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
