Upper West Side

Recommended
Historically the seat of the city's intelligentsia, the Upper West Side remains an enclave of performing artists and literate liberals drawn to the area's world-famous cultural venues, including Lincoln Center and Columbia University. Lately the area has attracted an eclectic blend of residents in recent years, evidenced by its mix of luxury apartment buildings, stylish row houses, artists' studios and urban renewal projects.
