UES is great! It’s cheaper than the UWS generally and there are a lot of young couples with pets :) we moved there from midtown east and like it a lot more. There are a lot of restaurants, coffee shops, etc and it’s definitely more neighborhoody and pet friendly than midtown

Now would be the time to change it within our dept if we’re ever going to. Currently we have: (see comments)
