Get off the subway at 86th and just walk around. Always something to see. River to the west, Central Park to the east; what’s not to love?

The Upper West Side is a beautiful part of Manhattan with lots of interesting old brownstones buildings. There are lots of small shops and restaurants, and the people watching is great.

This is a less touristy area of NYC, where you can leisurely walk the less crowded streets and avenues. It is a very nice residential area, filled with great stores, restaurants, movie theaters and coffee shops.

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
