Nestled between Riverside and Central Park, the Upper West Side is one of the greenest parts of Manhattan. The Upper West Side is known for popular attractions like the Natural History Museum and Lincoln Center, but relaxed bistros and a lively bar scene defy expectations in this sparkling and cozy uptown neighborhood.
The Upper West Side has a longstanding reputation for attracting the culturally-aware. Artists, professors, filmmakers, and writers made their homes on the Upper West Side and helped it develop into an urban oasis for intellectual curiosity.
In the Upper West Side, many blocks feel like quiet, small-town neighborhoods.
Blocks get a little busier farther south near Columbus Circle. The busy traffic circle is a public transportation hub, entrance to Central Park, and a popular shopping destination.
The Upper West Side is home to some of the greatest cultural institutions the city has to offer. Lincoln Center hosts the New York City Ballet, The New York Philharmonic Orchestra and a number of other performing arts programs.
The American Museum of Natural History located in a pocket of Central Park has over 45 exhibits and scientific collections, as well as a planetarium and library.
The Upper West Side isn’t considered a destination for hardcore partiers. A row of bars on Amsterdam Avenue is popular for sporting events and low-key nights out.
The Upper West Side has a large number of condo, co-ops and high-rise buildings.
Streets lined with brownstones make the Upper West Side feel like mini suburban neighborhoods, with grassy lawns, playgrounds, and grade schools on every block.
Farther north above the 90s there are smaller, more affordable buildings. Out here, you can still find walk-ups for a steal.
