I enjoyed the atmosphere: the musical venues, the restaurants (if you can, have a steak at the stake house there) and the people that you see while you listen to a concert.

A High End Mall that is more than a Mall. This is an attraction with choices galore, and now they are adding on even more space. This is a shopaholics nirvana. What a great place to go and find distractions from around the world.

Lincoln Square is the name of both a square and the surrounding neighborhood within the Upper West Side. Lincoln Square is centered on the intersection of Broadway and Columbus Avenue, between West 65th and West 66th streets. There is nothing specially interesting there, in comparison to so many other interesting sites in Manhattan.

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.
