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 is found in this neighborhood, from renovated Dutch Revival rowhouses to glassy new construction luxury condominiums, and neo-Gothic apartments to Beaux Arts luxury condos such as the Kenilworth building.
Home to the American Museum of Natural History, The Children’s Museum of Manhattan, and the Lincoln Center’s ballet and theaters, the Upper West Side provides an important hub for the arts and history. To its north, academia thrives at Columbia University and Barnard College. Residents have access to a multitude of options for retail, and gourmet restaurants are found throughout the area’s streets. The Upper West Side offers one of the most quintessential Manhattan living experiences.
