What to Know Before Moving to the Upper West Side

Here are a few things to know before moving to the UWS.


Since 1869, the American Museum of Natural History, located on Central Park West, has featured magnificent exhibits of the natural world and our universe. In addition to AMNH, The American Folk Art Museum, Children’s Museum of Manhattan, Museum of Biblical Art, and Lincoln Center’s vast array of world-famous performing arts venues lure those who create and seek intellectual and cultural inspiration. Lincoln Center’s venues include the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, New York City Ballet, Juilliard School of Music, Film Society of Lincoln Center, Metropolitan Opera, and much more. The UWS offers an astonishing array of culture and intellectual stimulation.

From sleek towers to pre-war condominiums, the Upper West Side has a wide range of fantastic buildings. The apartment buildings that line Central Park West are some of the city’s most elegant and magnificent. The famous Dakota, overlooking Central Park at 72nd Street, has been home to many famous celebrities including Leonard Bernstein, Lauren Bacall, and John Lennon. Other Upper West Side streets, such as Riverside Drive, feature lovely pre-war buildings with views that overlook Riverside Park. West End Avenue’s late 19th- and early 20th-century Beaux-Arts townhouses and apartment buildings and Broadway’s notable buildings like The Apthorp, The Ansonia, the Astor Court Building, and The Belnord are architecturally significant and add to the beauty of the neighborhood.

Intimate Neighborhood Feel

Strolling this neighborhood’s charming streets can transport you to another world where it’s hard to believe that the Big Apple looms around you. Beautifully maintained brick apartment buildings and elegant brownstones and townhomes line leafy side streets, giving parts of the Upper West Side an intimate small-town feel. You’ll see writers, actors, musicians, artists, and other creative types enjoying the UWS delicatessens, trendy cafes, gourmet groceries, and retro diners that were featured in films like The Goodbye Girl, and You’ve Got Mail, or TV series like Seinfeld or Sex and the City. But you’ll also see lots of young families with children who love the Upper West Side’s easy access to parks, good schools, and relative lack of a big business hubbub.
