The Upper West Side is one of Manhattan’s most desirable residential neighborhoods, sandwiched between the Hudson River and Central Park. Architecture of all types can be found in this neighborhood, from renovated Dutch Revival rowhouses to glassy new construction luxury condominiums, and from neo-Gothic apartments to Beaux Arts luxury condos like the Kenilworth building.
Home to the American Museum of Natural History, The Children’s Museum of Manhattan, and Lincoln Center’s famed ballet and opera performances, the Upper West Side is the cultural hub of Manhattan while to the north, academia thrives at Columbia University and Barnard College. Residents have access to a multitude of options for retail, as well as a host of gourmet restaurants throughout the area. The Upper West Side offers one of the most quintessential Manhattan living experiences with tree-lined streets, small shops and cafes, and fine dining and high-end retail alike.
