It was a little disappointing to see the monument in such disregard. The landscaping hasn't been done in quite some time. There was graffiti on the monument itself. There was a lot of work that needed to be done. It was almost upsetting to see...More

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,
