The Upper West Side (UWS) is home to lively mix of young professionals, families and college students and stretches from West 59th St to the low 100’s from Central Park West to the River.


Located at the southwest corner of Central Park, the Upper West Side begins at Columbus Circle, where the new Time Warner Center and the Trump Tower converge for both business and pleasure.

In 2005, Time Warner moved its corporate headquarters from Sixth Avenue to the Time Warner Center and filled it with offices, residences, a Millennium Hotel and upscale stores there. The Time Warner Center also became the NYC headquarters of CNN a few years later. Donald Trump, one of New York’s most infamous residents, offices nearby in his building, the Trump International Hotel and Tower. Finally, Columbia University, less than three miles away, offers its students a beautiful campus within a city and countless professionals higher educational degree programs.

Great Outdoors

Central Park, with its meadows, zoo and concerts is a strong argument for living on the UWS. And there’s no better place for a jog or bike ride than its roadways and paths. On the opposite side of the neighborhood, there’s Riverside Park, a gorgeous strip of real estate that doesn’t attract the crowds of its more famous sister.
