The Upper West Side is a neighborhood in the borough of Manhattan, New York City, that lies between Central Park and the Hudson River and between West 59th Street and West 110th Street. The Upper West Side is sometimes also considered by real estate brokers to include the neighborhood of Morningside Heights.

Like the Upper East Side, the Upper West Side is an upscale, primarily residential area with many of its residents working in more commercial areas in Midtown and Lower Manhattan. It has the reputation of being home to New York City's cultural, intellectual hub (with Columbia University located at the north end of the neighborhood), and artistic workers (with Lincoln Center located at the south end), while the Upper East Side is traditionally perceived to be home to commercial and business types.

The neighborhood is also referred to for short as just the 'West Side' or the 'UWS'.

It has the reputation of being home to New York City's cultural, intellectual hub (with Columbia University located at the north end of the neighborhood), and artistic workers (with Lincoln Center located at the south end), while the Upper East Side is traditionally perceived to be home to commercial and business types.

Often called the city's quintessential neighborhood, the area includes delightful residential streets, the twin-towered facades of the old apartment hotels on Central Park West and Riverside Drive, two of the city's best-known markets (Zabar's and Fairway) , one of its major museums (the American Museum of Natural History), an Ivy League university (Columbia University), and the Neo-Gothic Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The area is an architectural historian's delight with many of its buildings (especially in Morningside Heights) built before the Second World War and quite a few built before the First World War, though the area is changing with the construction of large condominium buildings south of 110th Street. The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, running from 62nd Street to 66th Street, contains the Metropolitan Opera; the New York State Theater, home of the New York City Opera and Ballet; Avery Fisher Hall, the home of the New York Philharmonic; the Juilliard School; and the New York Public Library's Library for the Performing Arts, among other institutions.

Just 10 minutes walk to Central Park:

Birding: A wooded section of the park called 'The Ramble' is popular among birders. Many species of woodland birds, especially warblers, may be seen in The Ramble in Spring and Fall.

Boating: Rowboats and kayaks are rented on an hourly basis at the Loeb Boathouse, which also houses a restaurant overlooking the Lake. As early as 1922, model power boating was popular on park waters.

Carriage horses: the carriage horse industry, revived in New York City in 1935, has been featured in various films; the first female carriage driver, Maggie Cogan, appeared in a newsreel in 1967. The ethics of this tradition and the effects on horse health and well being have been questioned by various animal rights activists.

Pedicabs: Pedicabs operate mostly in the southern part of the park, the same part as horse carriages.

Sports: Park Drive, just over 6 miles (9.7 km) long, is a haven for runners, joggers, bicyclists, and inline skaters. Most weekends, races take place in the park, many of which are organized by the New York Road Runners. The New York City Marathon finishes in Central Park outside Tavern on the Green. Many other professional races are run in the park, including the recent, (2008), USA Men's 8k Championships. Baseball fields are numerous, and there are also courts for volleyball, tennis, croquet and lawn bowling.

Rock Climbing: Central Park's glaciated rock outcroppings attract climbers, especially boulderers; Manhattan's bedrock, a glaciated schist, protrudes from the ground frequently and considerably in some parts of Central Park. The two most renowned spots for boulderers are Rat Rock and Cat Rock; others include Dog Rock, Duck Rock, Rock N' Roll Rock, and Beaver Rock, near the south end of the park

.

Ice Skating: Central Park has two ice skating rinks, Wollman Rink and Lasker Rink, which converts to an outdoor swimming pool in summer.

Spanning more than 800 acres (3.24 square kilometers) in the heart of Manhattan, Central Park encompasses a diverse landscape of rolling fields, walking trails and tranquil waterways. Designed in the mid-19th century by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the park today is the centerpiece of the City's public parks system. Among its landmarks are Wollman Rink, the Central Park Zoo and the Friedsam Memorial Carousel—great for kids of all ages. Sheep Meadow and the Great Lawn, meanwhile, offer sprawling expanses where visitors can relax and enjoy the outdoors. In the summer, the Great Lawn plays host to free shows courtesy of The Metropolitan Opera and the New York Philharmonic while the Delacorte Theater is the location for Shakespeare in the Park. Elsewhere in the park, Rumsey Playfield is the site of SummerStage, a free performing arts festival featuring music, dance, film and more.

Central Park is a public park at the center of Manhattan in New York City. The park initially opened in 1857, on 778 acres (315 ha) of city-owned land (it is 840 acres today). In 1858, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux won a design competition to improve and expand the park with a plan they entitled the Greensward Plan. Construction began the same year, continued during the American Civil War, and was completed in 1873. Central Park is the most visited urban park in the United States.

Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1962, the park is currently managed by the Central Park Conservancy under contract with the city government. The Conservancy is a non-profit organization that contributes 83.5% of Central Park's $37.5 million annual budget, and employs 80.7% of the park's maintenance staff.

  • Notes
    • The home of diverse cultural attractions, the Upper West side is sandwiched between Riverside Park to the west and Central Park to the east. Both parks are excellent leisurely green spaces to spend a day. Central Park is especially notable, as it is New York’s 'flagship' park. With over 843 acres of land, it is home to 275 species of birds. It’s quite easy to spend an entire day there too, as the park has several restaurants on its perimeter, a Boathouse, a Carousel, ball fields, a running track, reservoir, sculptures of Alice in Wonderland and Shakespeare, and a nearly endless list of events and other attractions. In addition to being the most densely populated area of the United States, the Upper West Side is the home of several academic institutions and a litany of famous people too numerous to list here. The American Museum of Natural History is among the most notable museum in the neighborhood.

Excelentes vacaciones en familia con mucho frío

Review submitted: March 13, 2014   Date of arrival: February 24, 2014

Nos alojamos 10 días entre el 24 de febrero al 6 de marzo. Eramos 4, mi esposa,mis hijos ( 24 y 20 años) y yo. El Apartamento resultó perfecto para nuestros fines. Muy bien equipado, con una excelente calefacción para el gran frío que nos tocó en esos días. Los dos baños son muy cómodos. La zona es tranquila y por las noches se podía descansar muy bien, sobretodo teniendo en cuenta las excelentes camas que dispone. Solo un comentario adicional que no tiene nada que ver con el lugar pero si con la estadía. Una tarde, estando uno de mis hijos duchándose y un primo que vive en Boston que lo vino a visitar en la cocina, abrió la puerta del apartamento una persona que se presentó como el dueño y mi hijo tuvo que salir de la ducha para conversar con él. Agradezco que el dueño se preocupe por saber si estábamos bien o si necesitábamos alguna cosa pero no creo que sea correcto - aún siendo el dueño - que la persona abra la puerta sin llamar, violando la intimidad del inquilino. De todas maneras reitero que dicha situación nada tiene que ver con el apartamento, el cual para nosotros resultó excelente.
