Friends of the Upper East Side Historic Districts
In addition to safeguarding the Upper East Side's six historic districts and 125 individual landmarks and being an advocate for sound preservation policies for the city, Friends seeks to maintain and improve zoning laws governing the area's avenues and residential side streets. The Friends website lacks visuals of landmarks and historically important places on the upper east side, but it will be very helpful in finding these places on your own -- clear maps and brief informative descriptions about several different historical districts on the Upper East. Also links to other preservation and landmark sites and resources.
