A comfy, relaxed neighborhood between Central Park and the Hudson River, the “Upper West” has something for everybody. Magnificent, new, as well as grandly historic, apartment buildings line Central Park West. Affordable apartments for Columbia University students, artists, musicians & writers fill the brownstone-lined side streets. Some of the most comprehensive – and famous – food purveyors anywhere are here. Cultural hot spots such as the huge Natural History Museum and Lincoln Center make it impossible to be bored.
A no-nonsense brainy enclave.
Informed, progressive, active, committed.
