A REMARKABLE
NEIGHBORHOOD

The Upper West Side is a cultural cornucopia, as well as one of New York’s most refined and elegant residential neighborhoods. It is sought after not only for its unique access to Manhattan’s two largest parks—Central Park and Riverside Park—but for its diverse and significant architecture. Its large landmarks include the performance showcases of Lincoln Center and The American Museum of Natural History, with its Rose Center for Earth and Space, and The New York Historical Society. But it is equally blessed with innovative restaurants and an extensive array of stores, ranging from glamorous boutiques to independent specialty shops.

BETWEEN TWO PARKS

Central Park is, of course, a renowned landmark of landscape and urban design, a verdant totally man-made garden, studied and imitated all over the world. With its huge lawns, stunning vistas, playgrounds and sports facilities, riding, bicycling and running paths, and countless nooks and crannies, it’s a source of endless enjoyment in all seasons.

For four miles along the Hudson River from 72nd Street to 155th Street, Riverside Park—another creation of Central Park’s co-creator Frederick Law Olmsted— is also a scenic landmark. In recent years, the Hudson River Greenway running through Riverside Park along the Hudson River, has become the most popular bicycle path in the United States.

BETWEEN TWO PARKS

What makes the neighborhood and The Belnord unique is its placement square between Central Park and Riverside Park and the Hudson riverfront just beyond.

If your favorite exercise is shopping, the Upper West Side will give you a real workout, offering everything from the world’s best department stores to a plethora of the sort of insider cult-favorite specialty shops that are an endangered species elsewhere in New York, but still thrive on the streets and wide boulevards around The Belnord.

While you’ll never tire of the Upper West Side, it’s also easy to get anywhere in the city. Kids enjoy the nearby Strong Museum’s Playground of Fun, Kidville, Little Gym and the Children’s Museum of Manhattan.
