The Upper East Side “Girl Ghetto”

May 3, 2008

A fashion magazine published an article in 1966 calling the far Upper East Side “the domain of the single girl.” I doubt anyone considers it the “swingiest” square mile in Manhattan anymore…if they ever really did. And about those “banjo and beer saloons?” In 2008, it’s more like sports bars.

Swingy or not, it’s safe to say the nabe east of Lexington is still a holding pen for recent female grads.
