The structure was completed in 1958, tops out at 8 stories and contains over 52,800 square feet of office space for rent. As 165 E 56th St is a medium-sized structure, it can be well-suited for small or mid-sized organizations that are not looking for large blocks of contiguous office space. Medium sized buildings in New York City are plentiful and are quite diverse in size and class offerings.

The result is a great selection of office space for tenants, and huge foot traffic numbers for retailers. 165 East 56th Street is highly accessible thanks to New York City’s extensive bus and train network.

Upper East Side

The Upper East Side, comprising Lenox Hill, Carnegie Hill, and Yorkville, has a long history of affluence in New York City. Notable American families with homes here have included the Kennedys, Roosevelts, Rockefellers, and Carnegies.

Compared to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan neighborhoods further south, the Upper East Side moves at a slower, more relaxed pace. The large number of schools, playgrounds, and community centers make the neighborhood feel a bit more suburban. And of course, Central Park and Museum Mile are two of the most popular family destinations in all of the city.

The Upper East Side is also the scene of the newly opened Second Avenue Subway, much to the delight of residential and commercial tenants. The Q-line runs along Second Avenue from 72nd Street up to 96th Street, and has alleviated much of the pressure from the 4,5,6 lines.

Rents for commercial real estate spaces in the Upper East Side fall right at the city-wide average of $72/sqft. For this price you can join the midst of companies such as Dylan’s Candy Bar and Agata & Valentina.

Nearby Districts Include: Midtown, and the Upper West Side.
