We spent four nights at this lovely B and B and it was absolutely perfect for our short stay in New York. The location to the subway, restaurants, cafes and Central Park couldn't have been better and yet we had the peace and charm of the quieter little streets in New York. Our room, although small, was lovely, clean and... More

We stayed with Susan for 10 nights in November/December 2014. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and the location is fabulous. It is such a great neighbourhood with a variety of restuarants & stores close by. We found we did a lot of walking, as everything was so accessable and when we wanted to travel further the subway was very... More

I have stayed with the wonderful Susan twice now - just got back yesterday - and I really should have written her a review last time. She deserves the many great reviews on here and so I felt that I had to explain how fabulous 'Between The Parks' is. Wanting to go to NYC, I looked into hotels and found... More

I stayed for a week at the end of June and found this to be the perfect Having visited NYC previously, I wanted this trip to have much more of a 'local' feel and Between the Parks absolutely has this; located just a few minutes walk from Central Park and the many cafes, restaurants and bars on Amsterdam Avenue, you...

I stayed with Susan for four nights in June. She was very welcoming and informative; before the trip, she answered some of my questions by email, and once there, she provided maps and brochures and even told me about a wonderful Shakespeare troupe that I otherwise would have missed. The bedroom and bath are clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were... More

My husband and I stayed 8 days in Susan's apartment in April and felt very well looked after. We loved the location, the accomodation, the breakfast and especially the hostess, Susan, who is an intelligent, erudite, quintessential New Yorker with a wealth of knowledge about the city. We won't hesitate to recommend to family and friends. Thankyou Susan for making... More

For us, it has it all: a perfect location, a delightful hostess, a relaxed atmosphere and an excellent breakfast of fresh fruit, wonderful croissants and bagels, coffee and juice.

Between the Parks B&B is an excellent choice for those people visiting NYC who want an authentic NY experience, of a high standard, with a host who is extremely knowledgeable and a true New Yorker!

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
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, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
