243 W 72ND ST in Upper West Side

Upper West Side

Quiet Good transportation Fun nightlife Great food LGBT-popular

Upper West Side residents can’t imagine living anywhere else.

The buildings are beautiful and, with a few exceptions, tend not to tower over the blocks. The pace of life is a bit slower than in other areas of NYC. For anyone that has lived in or knows Boston, the neighborhood is the closest thing to Boston living that New York has.
