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.

It is in the center of everything the Upper West side has to offer, a block from Central Park, 1, B and C subways a block away, and great shopping and dining. The building is an elevator building with laundry and a live in super. Theres exposed brick and a sunken living room. Brian Totin (Jun 2010)
Within the area are Central park, Museum of Natural History, fine restaurants, trendy bars, and specialty stores. Fantastic UWS Location, a block from Central Park, nearby museums, transit, shopping, bars and restaurants. Transportation is very good, where the subway station is only a few blocks away.
