Upper West Side

To the west of Central Park is the Upper West Side. Compared to the vibe of its Upper East Side neighbor across the park, this neighborhood is a more casual alternative. The area is home to several famous art and cultural attractions including the Metropolitan Opera, the American Museum of Natural History, Julliard School and Lincoln Center. To add to the artistic and intellectual vibe, the Upper West Side hosts numerous restaurants, gourmet markets and plentiful stores to enjoy.

Real-estate is ample and though tourism is significant, the stunning views, neighborhood ambiance and city living appeals to many. Homes range from historic brownstones to classic tenements, from simple mid-rise buildings to spectacular contemporary high-rises.
