I love the way these streets on the upper east side roll all the way down about as far as you can see. It happens in both directions, depending on where you stand.
Stand in the right spot and you’ll see the water. Other spots you’ll see the tip of Manhattan. Standing in the middle of the road is not advised. At least be sure to have a friend spot you when the light changes in your favor. Step into the road, turn your head and gaze into the wonder that is the perfect grid of a city, made just for you.
