A Luxurious Yet Laid-Back Lifestyle in the Upper West Side

Tucked between the Hudson River and Central Park, the Upper West Side is a quieter and more laid-back slice of Manhattan—right in the heart of all the city’s got to offer. This upscale and mostly residential area is also home to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (NY Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera, NYC Ballet), the American Museum of Natural History, and Beacon Theatre, among other art-and-cultural hotspots, making it one of Manhattan’s finest high-end cultural hubs.
