Bibendum
Known primarily as an enclave for New York City's "old money," the Upper East Side developed in the late 19C, as rich industrialists including Andrew Carnegie and Henry Clay Frick began building mansions on the large lots along Fifth Avenue abutting Central Park. The ladies who lunch followed on their heels, moving into then-new luxury apartment buildings along Park Avenue and town houses on the side streets. Today cultural institutions occupy some of the Gilded-Age mansions, but the area still, for the most part, remains the domain of New York's ultra-wealthy.
