Upper West Side Apartments

Manhattan's Upper West Side is a sprawling, vibrant, richly diverse section of the city that extends from Central Park to Riverside Park, from 59th Street to 110th Street. To learn more about the Upper West Side's location, and transportation options, check out our page, "Where is the Uper West Side?"


In fact, the area has grown so popular in the past two decades or so, with even grittiest blocks cleaned up and attracting everyone from young professionals looking to rent Upper West Side apartments, to established families seeking to buy condos.


The traditional "Upper West Side" now includes the mini-neighborhoods of Lincoln Square and Manhattan Valley, and is a great place to find your next NY apartment.


Upper West Side: An Eclectic Mix

The Upper West Side neighborhood is emphatically residential in its character and, given its large geographic area, it's no surprise that the types of buildings here vary widely. Families, couples young and old, or singles (or roommates) seeking Upper West Side apartments to rent or buy have an enormous number of options from which to choose, from the full-amenity contemporary high rise towers on Broadway and Columbus, to the beautiful old pre-war buildings on West End Avenue and Central Park West.


Rows of lovely brownstones line the streets in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, from Amsterdam to Central Park. To mention all of the noteworthy buildings in this architecturally-rich neighborhood would take too long for this page, but the list would certainly include the Dakota, the Ansonia, the Apthorp, the Time-Warner Center, the San Remo, the Beresford, and Columbus Square.


The Upper West is home to many of New York City's great cultural and educational institutions, including Lincoln Center (with the spectacular, new Alice Tully Hall), the American Museum of Natural History, the Juilliard School of Music, the Rose Center for Earth and Space (encompassing the Hayden Planetarium), the fully-interactive Children's Museum of Manhattan, and the glorious old Beacon Theatre.


There are first-rate public schools throughout the Upper West Side, as well as several of New York City's most exclusive private schools. And if you have children, the Upper West Side offers easy access to huge amounts of outdoor spaces, ball fields of all kinds, and playgrounds. Riverside Park flanks the neighborhood's west side, while Central Park borders the east.


Convenient Shopping in the Upper West Side

The Upper West Side is filled with boutique and chain stores, bodegas, gourmet shops and supermarkets (including two Whole Foods, a Cittarella and a Farway). Several mom-and-pop shops and big-box stores--line the avenues of Broadway, Amsterdam, and Columbus. And although the area used to be known as something of a culinary wasteland, these days there is no shortage of great places to eat--and to eat almost anything you can imagine—from the four-star trio in Columbus Circle (Per Se, Masa, and Jean Georges) to newcomers like Telepan, Kefi, Bar Boulud, Dovetail and the rollicking Fatty Crab, to old neighborhood favorites such as Gennaro and Barney Greengrass.
