I have always been a fan of the upper west side versus the upper east side of Manhattan. Older pre-war buildings, better views of Central Park, Museum row and the Hudson river all within walking distance. More "old money" also on display. Restaurants, boutiques, shops...More

You wouldn't believe this is Manhattan. Very peaceful, quiet. Lots of brownstones to look at, beautiful architecture. Lot of exploring to do around there. you can walk from the 65th street all the way to 85th street and not even know it.

I love New York City and this is a historic area that feels so quiet compared to the hustle and bustle of the city. It is a great area to see and probably a great place to live.

If you're looking for a slightly expensive French restaurant with a decent menu, this place on West 68th St., near Columbus Ave., is recommended. It has a small kitchen, which can be slammed when there's a full house, but the waitstaff does its best under...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
