    Around that time, the Upper East Side was popular for Germans. The Yorkville area was commonly known as Germantown. The main drag, 86th Street, was locally referred to as Sauerkraut Boulevard.

      About 15 years ago, I thought to look for a German Restaurant on E86th Street. I couldn't find one.
