Neighborhood Description

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 neighborhood has many advantages including proximity to both Central Park and the Hudson River Park, culture (including Lincoln Center and the Museum of Natural History), and a family-friendly atmosphere that is great for kids and strollers.

The neighborhood is perfect for people that like to be active. Take a run around the Central Park reservoir, bike through Central Park, play baseball or football on the Great Lawn or roller blade along the Hudson.

The neighborhood is also perfect for the gastronomically active that like good food and a drink or two. Grabbing some greasy food and a drink at the Boat Basin is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. The upscale Time Warner Center has a collection of great restaurants. Similarly, the food around Lincoln Center is fantastic.

Today, the Upper West Side is upscale and primarily residential. The population is around 150,000. Shops are abundant up and down Broadway and throughout the neighborhood. Lincoln Center, The Beacon Theatre, and The New York City Ballet are among the neighborhood’s renowned landmarks. The rest of the neighborhood is scattered with cafés, coffee shops, movie theatres, bars, and restaurants. Some noteworthy restaurants include: Jean-Georges, Calle Ocho, and Café Lalo (featured in the 1998 film, You’ve Got Mail).

What began as a mass of valleys and wetland eventually became home to numerous farms and country homes, and then, by the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, an area characterized by some of NYC’s most ambitious houses. Yet, throughout the nineteenth and much of the twentieth centuries, the Upper West Side was distinctly lower class. This was, in part, because the creation of Central Park in the 1850s and 1860s caused many squatters in the city to migrate uptown. By 1960, a large part of the Upper West Side was thought of as a rough neighborhood with certain districts reserved for tenement housing. As a matter of fact, when the area began to undergo urban renewal, the demolition of the tenement housing was delayed so that the area could be used for exterior shots in West Side Story.

The Upper West Side is located between Central Park and the Hudson River, north of Lincoln Square, and south of Morningside Heights.

Subway options include the 1/2/3 and A/C/E trains, which make several stops along the Upper West Side. There are also five different bus routes: the M5 runs from north to south on Riverside Drive, the M104 runs north to south on Broadway, the M7/M11 runs north on Amsterdam and south on Columbus, the M10 runs north and south on Central Park West, and crosstown buses run at every major intersection.
