Q. Where is the Upper West Side?
A. Many out-of-towners probably have an idea that the Upper West Side is located near Central Park, but a common question we still get asked is, where is the Upper West Side? This great (and big) neighborhood is located between West 59th Street and West 110th Street, with the Hudson River as it's western boundary, and Central Park as it's eastern boundary
You will notice a couple of "notches" cut out on our map to the right. That bottom notch is a "sub-neighborhood" called Lincoln Square, while the notch at the top is "Manhattan Valley." While many residents of those areas will say they live in the Upper West Side (and they would technically be correct), others will prefer to refer to their respective "sub-neighborhood."
To learn more about living in the neighborhood, check out our Upper West Side neighborhood page. Transportation information for the area can be found below.
Q. How do I get to the Upper West Side?
A. The next question we get asked, after "where is the Upper West Side," is "how do I get there?" Fortunately, the UWS has great subway options. The 1/9 trains run through the center of the neighborhood, following Broadway the entire length of the neighborhood. These trains will take you south into such neighborhoods as the Theater District, Chelsea, the West Village, SoHo, Financial District and on into Brooklyn. Heading north, you can visit Morningside Heights, Hamilton Heights, Washington Heights, and Inwood. That's a lot of "heights" to visit!
The B/C trains run the entire length of Central Park West, and you can transfer to the A/C lines at 59th Street and 110th Street.These lines will also take you to a variety of neighborhoods in Manhattan, as well as Brooklyn and up into the Bronx.
Of course, city buses when throughout the neighborhood, including 4 different crosstown buses that will take you through/around Central Park to the Upper East Side.
Driving... well, it's Manhattan, so why would you drive? For those of you brave enough/foolhardy enough, you can access the Henry Hudson Parkway at both West 79th Street, and West 96th Street. But we advise using mass transit, or get a cab.
