Back to School

  • One of the primary considerations for many of our clients when making a home purchase is ensuring the accessibility of excellent schools.
  • School proximity is not only a factor for families with current or expected children, but also a driver of resale value for any homeowner.
  • As a lifelong Trinity K-12 family we can attest that much of the long-standing value of the Upper East and Upper West Sides is due to the various top educational institutions in the immediate vicinity. Commensurate with today’s strong buyer interest in additional areas of NYC including Downtown, the Far West Side, and Prime Brooklyn, we are now seeing an increase in local retail, cultural, infrastructure and educational options
  • We therefore thought it would be informative to briefly outline some of the long-standing and new excellent schools in areas outside of the traditional Upper East and West Side locales.
