UPPER EAST SIDE — You spoke loud and clear: the majority of Upper East Side readers are convinced their neighborhood extends past East 96th Street, which for some has been the traditional dividing line between it and East Harlem.

When we asked readers to draw where their neighborhoods begin and end, hundreds responded. Now, DNAinfo New York has released all of the results, including those outlining Yorkville, Carnegie Hill and Lenox Hill.

Those who drew their own maps also reported how long they’ve lived in their neighborhoods, showing big differences about what constitutes the Upper East Side.

While the majority of residents of all durations believe the Upper East Side begins at East 65th Street and ends at East 102nd Street, those who have only lived there for less than five years don't include anywhere east of First Avenue in their definition of the neighborhood.

Those who have lived there for longer do.

Carnegie Hill residents who have lived in the area for less than five years think the neighborhood is bigger than those who have lived there for much longer.

The neighborhood seems to expand past just Madison and Park avenues east to Lexington Avenue.
