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.

The building is in a PRIME location, between West End Avenue and Broadway, 3 blocks to the 1/2/3 line, providing easy access to wherever you may venture, be it Columbia University uptown, or Lincoln Center downtown and beyond.
