The Boat Basin is one beautiful spot on the Hudson River, Upper West Side of Manhattan. The River Walk (completed in 2010) provides a long, easy path for walking and biking. Riverside Park, beautiful views of the river, and the cool breeze are always there....More

This area of the Upper West Side is a great place for people watching or Hudson River watching in any season. Plop down on a bench and watch the world go by.

downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
