Upper West Side
Manhattan’s Upper West Side – between 59th Street (excluding Columbus Circle) and 110th Street; Central Park to the Hudson River – is one of the City’s most desirable—and livable— neighborhoods for anyone seeking an elegant urban retreat and destination for upscale quiet enjoyment. Made up of wide avenues, landmark pre-war apartment buildings, brownstones on tree-lined blocks, walk-ups, and extravagant new condominium buildings, the Upper West side has a rich architectural variety.
In addition to the proximity of Central Park and spectacular views of the Hudson, neighborhood features include an abundance of cultural centers like the Lincoln Center, the Museum of Natural History, the Beacon Theatre, the New York Historical Society and the Manhattan Children’s Museum. Other nearby amenities include the Equinox, Soul Cycle, Pure Yoga and the Jewish Community Center which boasts a grand indoor swimming pool for those who love swimming.
The Upper West Side is home to celebrated and popular restaurants like Jean Georges, Caffe Storico, Telepan and Celeste, and arguably the best educational facilities in the City from Manhattan Day School to Julliard. In addition, you’ll find supermarkets, cafés and bookstores in the area as well as service by almost all subway lines.
