Upper West Side Real Estate Guide

The Upper West Side:
Uppwer West Side Brownstones

The Upper West Side boundaries are 59th Street to the South, 110th Street to the North, Central Park West to the East and the Hudson River to the West.

The Upper West Side neighborhood has a different spirit and outlook than the Upper East Side. The Upper West Side is known for its individuality, creativity, diversity and cultural pursuits.

The Upper West Side is home to some extraordinary buildings. Landmarks of Art Deco, Beaux Arts, or Gothic Revival architecture, the great celebrity apartment buildings of Central Park West.

Upper West Side zoning does not permit buildings to be taller than approximately 20 stories between 72nd and 96th Streets except the Art Deco Twin Tower buildings from the 1930's on Central Park West. The set back towers can go up to 30 floors

The Dakota, El Dorado, The San Remo Apartments, The Ansonia, The Oliver Cromwell, The Langham, The Kenilworth, Hotel Des Artistes, The Beresford and The Ardsley.

The Lincoln Center complex is home to the Metropolitan Opera and Julliard School of Music, Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall, the New York City Ballet and the Vivian Beaumont Theater.
The American Museum of Natural History is located on a stretch of Central Park West and Columbus Avenue between 77th and 81st Streets.

The Hayden Planetarium

The museum's new Hayden Planetarium is a galactic spectacular and is well worth the invested time.

It is a true pleasure to walk along the Upper West Side and take advantage of the well established blocks, boutiques, and restaurants. The Upper West side is known for it's food emporiums.

    The Upper West Side is the best place to live in Manhattan. You have everything you need, it's safe, pleasant to be around and it's not as crowded as the rest of the island. However, you still have to look out for unsavory landlords, like Mark Brucato of Heller Realty who is known to scam tenants.
