Our family of 4 adults booked two adjoining apartments in this gorgeous brownstone building on the upper west side for a week. The rooms were huge and beautifully furnished. Each had it's own kitchen facilities. Being two separate apartments meant we then had two bathrooms which sped things up in the mornings. The only drawback was no elevator, but this... More

We stayed at this property for 5 nights recently. Monica was very helpful during our stay. Wifi was great, clean apartment away from the noise from the streets. Enough restaurants nearby and Central Park is only 2 blocks away. We used to take our walks every day there. The subway station is also 2 blocks away and the bus stop... More

We stayed in this upper west side brownstone for 10 days in June 2016. Larry was a very amiable host who provided lots of tips for places to visit in New York and helped us use the subway etc. The apartment provides a separate living area and we enjoyed having the extra space with a kitchenette. The location is just... More

We visited New York for 10 days in May. Monica was away and Larry was our host. We had such a positive experience that we have resolved to return, hopefully next year. Larry was the perfect host, amiable, helpful and full of interesting stories. We felt we learned so much about New York from our time there. We loved the... More

My sister and I loved staying in apartments in Italy rather than hotels, so decided to give it a try in NYC this year for our annual "sister birthday getaway". We were not disappointed by our decision. The West Townhouse allowed us to have that same neighborhood experience with local businesses and eateries that were easily accessible. Monica and Larry...

My husband and I stayed at The West Townhouse for 5 nights the week after Easter. It offers an ideal location...two blocks from Central Park, walking distance to museums and public transportation, shopping (Zabars!) and restaurants. The bed was excellent, the apartment was comfortable and spotless. We stayed in Apartment 2 (garden level) at the back and it was wonderfully... More

Me and my mother stayed at the west townhouse for one week and we felt really welcome. Studio 1 was perfect! It has everything you need and is a clean and cosy studio apartment. We were welcomed by Larry and he made us feel at home right away. The neighborhood is very nice, lots of good restaurants where you don't... More

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.
