The Stratford is located on York Avenue, overlooking John Jay Park and the FDR Drive on the Upper East Side. It’s just a few blocks from many of the city’s most prestigious schools. The Upper East Side is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan, thanks to its quiet, tree-lined streets and gorgeous architecture. Once a haven for the wealthy and upper class folks, it’s become a place that also suits the upwardly mobile. The neighborhood has drawn bars, eateries and shopping destinations onto its streets, so you’ll never lack for something to do.

Why You Would Want to Live Here

Say it with us now: rooftop pool and sauna. Summers in New York get pretty hot, and a pool, especially a landscaped one complete with lounge chairs, is a hot commodity in the city. The Stratford’s apartments might not be all that and a bag of chips, but the rooftop pool alone sells the place. There’s also a fitness center and the spectacular Upper East Side location. The building is a bit far from transportation, but the prices are good, especially right now.
