Upper West Side

Located between 59th and 125th Streets between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side boasts beautiful row houses and some of the prettiest pre-war buildings you’ll find on tree-lined and flower laden streets. Although it can be an expensive place to live, the Upper West Side has all has all your day-to-day needs within walking distance. The Upper West Side consists of multiple smaller neighbors and is full of wonderful restaurants in all price ranges, world-class museums, fantastic schools, grocery stores, gyms, churches and clubs. Bordered at both East and West ends with the city’s biggest parks, the UWS definitely has activities for every member of your family. The Upper West Side is often depicted in film and tv shows, notably You’ve Got Mail, American Psycho, Ghostbusters, Hannah and her Sisters, among many others. Its vibe is one of sophisticated wealth and “old New York”.

Flat or Tall?

The Upper West Side has a large number of pre-war buildings (predominantly four- and five-story brownstones), with some exceptionally large, beautiful apartment buildings thrown in for good measure. Take a moment to go see the Dakota, constructed in the early 1880s at what is now 1 West 72nd St. While you’re there, visit the Strawberry Fields John Lennon memorial across the street in Central Park. Several large apartment buildings and complexes have been built here in subsequent years, especially to the north and west.

History

As early as the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries the Upper West Side had some of New York’s largest and most beautiful homes. The property fronting the Hudson River was a shipping and transportation corridor, and also housed the Hudson River Railway Line. The development in Central Park in the 1850s and 1860s drove some former residents of that area west, while Columbia’s relocation to Morningside Heights in the 1890s and the completion of New York’s first subway line along 7th Avenue in 1904 ushered in a period of great growth. The population of the UWS side has evolved into a diverse ethnic and religious mix (the Upper West Side is also one of the largest Jewish enclaves in New York City).

Activities

The Upper West Side is home to some of the city’s most-respected cultural institutions, including the Museum of Natural History, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan and the Bard Graduate Center and Gallery, among others. Perhaps the most notable institution is Lincoln Center, home to many of the city’s most renowned music and theater companies, including the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Philharmonic, and the New York City Ballet.

The Upper West Side is also a great place to eat. There are famous high-end food stores like Zabar’s and Fairway, and not-to-be-missed neighborhood spots like Alice’s Tea Cup, Isabella’s, Pasha, Shalel Lounge, Bustan, Makana, and The Cottage. In our humble opinion the very best cookies in Manhattan come from Levain’s Bakery on 74th St. (If you think you’ve got better cookies, we’d love to hear from you!) There are also countless places to grab brunch on the weekend a neighborhood tradition.

Despite its family friendly reputation, the Upper West Side has great nightlife. Some favorites include: the Irish Pub, Dead Poet, Cream, Evelyn Lounge, Sugar Bar and John Lennon’s favorite, The Parlor.
