The ‘Silk Stocking District’

The District
The diverse and densely populated Upper East Side of Manhattan is defined as the area between 59th Street, 96th Street, Central Park and the East River.  Once known as the ‘Silk Stocking District’, it boasts some of the most expensive real estate in the United States and, given the population density and high per capita income, is often touted as the home of our country’s greatest concentration of individual wealth. Source: UpperEastSide/
