The Upper East Side Historic District is a landmarked historic district on the Upper East Side of New York City's Borough of Manhattan, first designated by the city in 1981.[2] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[3] Its boundaries were expanded in 2010.[1][4]

The district is home to a number of buildings individually listed on the National Register, including the Gertrude Rhinelander Waldo Mansion and the Sara Delano Roosevelt Memorial House[1], as well as edifices that are more recent additions like the Edmond J. Safra Synagogue — a 2003 building designed in an "artful synthesis of the composition, details and material palette of the Beaux-Arts style," to complement the historic buildings that surround it.[5]
