Upper West Side
An upscale premier address, the coveted Upper West Side is a well-mannered historical neighborhood surrounded by beautiful Central Park and Riverside Park. Take in a show, stroll the parks, shop at some of the best boutique markets in town, relax on the tree-lined streets, dine at the finest restaurants and enjoy the village-like vibe.
Developed around the turn of the century, UWS is home to old world architecture, gorgeous brownstones, townhouses and famous pre-war buildings, the most famous being The Dakota, home of John Lennon. Its unpretentious and independent character makes it a choice neighborhood for a diverse group of people representative of the city as a whole. Home to the Julliard School and the Lincoln Center and other performing arts venues, it is a neighborhood of actors, writers, and musicians.
Bordered by Central Park and the Hudson River and between West 59th and West 110th streets, the Upper West Side offers multiple transit lines and is packed with fashionable stores, trendy bars and restaurants as well as multiple movie theaters.
