Area Information

Upper West Side

Ever since Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's depiction of the Upper Westside came to life in the legendary Broadway musical "West Side Story," the area has flourished into a neighborhood rich with the cultural opportunities and diverse experiences that define living in Manhattan. Bursting with entertainment, fashionable stores and gorgeous architecture, the neighborhood attracts a wide variety of residents, visitors and garden-variety wanderers. Charming townhouses, well-appointed co-ops and desirable condos with park and river views tend to be some of the most sought-after residences in the city. You'll also find distinguished prewar brownstones lining the blocks west of Broadway and stunning landmarks that cast shadows along the western edge of Central Park. Two of the most architecturally distinguished buildings on the west side, the impressive Dakota and the Italian Baroque San Remo, with its looming twin towers, are both located on Central Park West. The area offers residential opportunities that cater to any type of individual and has therefore drawn a diverse set of residents including artists, celebrities, families, retirees, young singles and business professionals, all of whom enjoy the area's charm and character.

The Upper Westside canvasses 59th to 110th Street and is sandwiched between two of the most magnificent parks in Manhattan, Central Park to the east and Riverside Park to the west. "How I like to refer to Central Park is that it's the largest backyard in the world," says Michael Goldenberg, Executive Director of Sales at Halstead's Westside office. "And if that's the case, then Riverside Park is the second largest backyard in the world. That's something that's unique and appealing to anyone."

The neighborhood boasts its own culture. It is home to the Museum of Natural History with its mammoth dinosaurs, the truly awe-inspiring glass enclosed Hayden Planetarium and the renowned Lincoln Center, the quintessential venue for artistic performance and education. The Time Warner Center and Shops at Columbus Circle are modern structures where you can satisfy all of your shopping needs. These artistic and cultural surroundings have fused a casual and intellectual mindset into the neighborhood which affords residents an enriched and stimulating living experience. Popular nightlife spots and bars are commonplace in this vibrant locale. The neighborhood has also seen a recent boom in exceptional, press-worthy restaurants and has become a premier dining destination.

The Upper Westside is truly the quintessential New York City neighborhood. It is diverse, casual, intellectual and desirable, with a culture all of its own. The neighbors are welcoming and friendly. The area provides easy access to transportation, parks, entertainment venues, cultural institutions, schools, restaurants, shopping and anything else that Manhattan has to offer. As Michael Goldenberg succinctly puts it, "It is truly one of the best places to live… There is nothing that you would be looking for to enjoy in the city of New York that you don't have easy access to."
