“Great for an alternative to shopping downtown.”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

There are a lot of great shops and restaurants here. I love this whole area. The Museum of Natural History, the NY Historical Society, Patagonia, Shake Shack, Fairway, and so much more.

“Great neighbourhood! La creme de la creme!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

What a great neighbourhood!!! Some great theaters, good shopping at Colombus Circle, some great stores on Broadway, home to the famous American Museum of Natural History, the west river-side park on one side and Central Park bordering on the other, some quaint cafe's and some decent eating joints...what more can you ask for in a neighbourhood? Tree-lined streets with some great pre-war buildings, where the rich and famous of Manhattan reside are a delight to stroll through! Worth a visit and a walk, just to get a feel of the real Manhattan,
which does exist beyond Times Square! :)

“The best of New York City!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

You could spend an entire vacation on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and not regret it. THOUSANDS of restaurants, shows, parks and museums to choose from. Interesting people and fantastic events all year round. I LIVE here and I don't get tired of it!

“Great Place to Visit, Better Place to Live”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

I lived here for 6 years. Great family area with lots of superb restaurants, especially on Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues. Museum of Natural History, Beacon Theater, Lincoln Center and all sandwiched between two great parks (Central and Riverside). The best place to live in Manhattan.
