The Upper West Side of Manhattan is a residential neighborhood with many excellent restaurants and shops. It is an great place to live and a terrific location from which to explore the rest of New York City. We are two blocks from Central Park and three blocks from Riverside Park, which have walking, biking, sports, bird watching, picnics, concerts, pools, playgrounds, ice skating, tennis, row boats, and more. We are two blocks from Symphony Space, a bustling venue for movies, music, and spoken word events. We are a block from the express subway, on which it is 10 minutes to Times Square, 20 minutes to the West Village, and 30 minutes to Wall Street. A double-decker tour bus stop is one block away.
It is impossible to summarize New York City. New York at Christmas is a wonderful place, with lots of events, incredible lights, the windows at Macy's and Sacks, horse-drawn carriages through snow-covered Central Park, the tree at Rockefeller Center, the Rockets at Radio City, the Nutcracker ballet, dozens of great museums, and lots of free events for kids. In the spring, the city's outdoor venues come to life: Central Park, Battery Park, Riverside Park, the Bronx Zoo (we're members so it's free for you), the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Bronx Botanical Gardens, the High Line, and much more; plus all the cultural centers are in full swing. Any time of year, you can have a great time in NYC.
