Upper West Side
Upper West, from Central Park West to the Hudson River, 59th Street (excluding Columbus Circle) to 110th Street.
Every ten blocks of the Upper West Side seem to have its own character. The 70s and 80s have their share of “Classic Six” prewar apartments (that’s two bedrooms, a living room, dining room, and kitchen plus a room for the maid or domestic staff, sometimes used as a home office) as opposed to a “Classic Seven,” which has all these rooms in addition to another bedroom. Along Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side, some grand-scale apartment buildings with magnificent river views perfectly match the street’s name. Meanwhile, the southern bit of the Upper West Side embraces the Time Warner Center, which has some of the most spectacular luxury condos in the city, along with high-end shops like Coach and Hugo Boss, once-in-a-lifetime eateries like Per Se, and a giant subterranean Whole Foods that seems to have the capability to hold every resident of the Upper West Side at once.
