This is a less touristy area of NYC, where you can leisurely walk the less crowded streets and avenues. It is a very nice residential area, filled with great stores, restaurants, movie theaters and coffee shops.
Loved strolling around looking at all the beautiful old buildings, markets, restaurants
old churches etc.
Safe area, not so touristy as mid town something for everyone!
Check it out you will really enjoy the neighborhood.
Some lament that it's not as interesting as it once was, that every new store is a character free bank or drug store, but there's still plenty to discover on a stroll through this area, up Amsterdam, down Columbus, or across the quiet side streets,...More
The Upper West Side is a tad off the beaten track, but it's one part of Manhattan that welcomes families. We stayed there with our son who works in the financial district -- not on Wall Street, but very close. He often walks to work....More

I have always been a fan of the upper west side versus the upper east side of Manhattan. Older pre-war buildings, better views of Central Park, Museum row and the Hudson river all within walking distance. More "old money" also on display. Restaurants, boutiques, shops...More
You wouldn't believe this is Manhattan. Very peaceful, quiet. Lots of brownstones to look at, beautiful architecture. Lot of exploring to do around there. you can walk from the 65th street all the way to 85th street and not even know it.
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of 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,
home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.

Scaffolding is very common in NYC. I actually come from England and now reside in nyc. I looked at the address of the hotel. The area is not very scenic so you are not missing much. This part of NYC is better known for its shops, restaurants and you are within 15 mins walk from Central Park and the American Museum of Natural History. The waather here is a bit awful like England, right now, so dress in layers. The underground(subway lines) are reliable and you should take the opportunity to see the city for its cultural heritage. So not to worry. Let me know if you have any other questions. I have lived her over 30 years now!!
