This is where some of Manhattan’s richest culture is found, and set within some of New York’s finest green space. Lincoln Center houses some of the world’s best jazz, opera, and dance. For the bookish, there’s Columbia University, an ivy league gem in the sub-section of Morningside Heights. And many more bookshops and gourmet stores line these streets.
While the Upper West Side is known for its intellectualism, it’s far from pretentious. Friendly, family-oriented, and with plenty of greenery, you’d be hard-pressed to find a cozier neighborhood in the city. Bike rides through Central Park and quiet strolls to laid-back restaurants are the norm. On the Upper West Side, one finds what’s often a scarcity in Manhattan: a sense of balance.Voir tous les espaces sur Upper West Side
There's good (and cheap) dive bars in Hell's Kitchen, and sometimes there are free concerts in Central Park.

I work locally and Amber Lounge is my favorite place to go out in the Upper West Side.

It's a family orientated neighborhood. Architecturally the area's cafes and shops have a European vibe.
