Where is District 5?
Rebecca has called District Five home for eight years – moving in right after graduating. She’s a resident of Yorkville and frequents every part of the district on a regular basis from East Harlem to Roosevelt Island to Midtown.
The district encompasses a long stretch from 49th St up to 100th St including chunks of East Harlem, the Upper East Side, Midtown, and all of Roosevelt Island. Rebecca recommends 787 Coffee, Gino’s Pizza, Mojo Deserts, Delizia Pizza, Pig Heaven, Korali Estiatorio, Punjabi Express, Kaia Wine Bar, Doggy Stylez for Dog Grooming, the Stube Bar, The Soup Lady at the Roosevelt Island Farmers Market (we love you!), Nisi Diner, the Four Freedoms Park, and of course Carl Schurz Park.
Come check out our weekly canvass launches on Roosevelt Island at 10am on Saturdays, and the Upper East Side on Sundays at 2pm.
