Known commonly as the home to movie and TV characters - and the actors who play them - the Upper West Side is a tree-lined neighborhood that spans the entire length of Central Park. Its riverfront location makes for picturesque water views, and it boasts a different, more village-like vibe than its Upper East side neighbor across the park. Columbia University and the Lincoln Center’s presence are felt greatly, attracting a varied group of residents who work in unique industries. With two subway lines and plenty of bus routes criss-crossing the neighborhood map, it’s easy to get around the neighborhood and beyond, just steps from Upper West Side apartments.
One of the most unique elements of the Upper West Side is how close it is to two fantastic NYC parks. Central Park’s 843 acres is to the east, which is a major attraction for Manhattanites and visitors looking for a chance to enjoy the great outdoors amid the high-rises and landmark skyscrapers; and Riverside Park is to the west, nestled along the Hudson’s shores with less-crowded walking and biking trails paired with fantastic river views. Historic, pre-war brownstones and Upper West Side apartments overlook these green spaces in addition to the towering buildings in nearby neighborhoods, making for incredible sights that can’t be found anywhere else in the Big Apple and beyond.
What’s a Manhattan neighborhood without its share of exquisite dining options near Upper West Side apartments and attractions? Local foodies flock to The Ribbon for delicious no-fuss cuisine and stellar ambiance; head to Gennaro for old-school Italian like grandma used to make; Barney Greengrass, one of the neighborhood’s most famous (and historic) eateries and the go-to place for smoked fish; and Candle Cafe West for the ‘hood’s most delicious vegan cuisine. When weekend brunch is more up your alley, Isabella’s has fantastic reviews and is stroller friendly to boot, just don’t forget to pick up a fresh batch of cookies at Levain Bakery on your way home!
