The upper west side is a fun place to walk and see. Between the various boutiques, bars and quaint restaurants you will have plenty to do. It is a quite residential area in Manhattan and well worth the visit.

Beautiful part of town with great museums, eateries, and colleges such as Columbia University, and parks that look over onto the Hudson. This part of town has more subway lines that the Upper East Side. MTA lines, A, B, C, D, 1,2,3, all take you...More

My friend and I enjoyed walking around the area and seeing the houses and structures. It's quaint & seems like you've seen it before even if it's the first time since some of the area has been used for TV or movies. Beautiful area.

More a living community than some of the tourist haunts around midtown and Times Square. A great place to walk and enjoy the old brownstones and mansions, plenty of cafes and restaurants for casual or expensive dining.

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,
