1240 AMSTERDAM AVE 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.

Conveniently located near Columbia University Campus, Teachers College, Barnard College, Bank Street College, Manhattan School of Music, Touro College and City College of New York. This pre-war low-rise building with voice intercom has on-site super and is in very convenient location. Anwar Samad (May 2011)
The location is just steps away from the Columbia Campus, making it ideal for Columbia, Teacher's College, Barnard and Manhattan School of Music students and faculty. I have thousands of listings throughout Manhattan in every size, price range and neighborhood. Jay W. Walker (Feb 2014)
