“Quintessential NY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

This is the classic Manhttan neighborhood. All visitors should go here. A mix of gracefull townhouses, elegant apartments, shopping for all income levels, major avenues and quiet side streets, and glamor mixing with work-a-day NY.

Lots of great restaurants, gourmet delis with takeout, near Central Park. Easy access to subway. Great neighborhood to come home to after a day of sight seeing.

“MY neighborhood!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I LIVE on the UWS and can't say enough great things about it. The diversity of people; the shopping; the parks (Central and Riverside); the restaurants; the attractions (American Museum of Natural History, just for one super example) - we have it ALL, and we're walkable or accessible to public transportation to the entire City!

“A fabulous neighborhood.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Walk Broadway from 72nd St. to 86th St. to understand what life is like on the West Side of New York. Check out the shops, restaurants, and buildings like the Ansonia on 73rd and the Apthorp on 79th. Be sure to stop at Fairway market on 74th and Zabar's on 80th.
