The UWS and UES have long had political stigmas attached to them. If recent fundraising figured from the campaigns of President Obama and likely Republican challenger Mitt Romney are any indication, those stigmas still hold true — the UWS is blue and the UES is red.
Looks like the protesters down in Zuccotti Park would be better situated if they moved on up to the UWS. Apparently the 10023 zip code has the “largest number of very rich households” in the United States. Suck on that, Upper East Side!
