Upper West Side

Wedged between the verdant expanses of Riverside Park and Central Park, the UWS is an eternally popular area for artists and families alike. Brownstones and 19th century icons like the Ansonia apartment building deliver the charm, while large apartment buildings and towers such as the Trump complex facing the Hudson River serve as reminders that change is inevitable even in a grand old neighborhood like this. Home to gourmet destinations like Fairway, Wholefoods, and Zabars, anyone in pursuit of the perfect bagel will find it here! 72nd Street boasts bars, restaurants, and bistros, while Amsterdam Avenue’s boutiques deliver chic fashion and accessories in ample servings. Home to professionals, artists, and musicians (many from the Juliard School on the Southern edge of the area), the tree-lined streets and relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere of the Upper West Side is quintessentially New York.
