  • Sitting proudly between Central and Riverside Parks, the Upper West Side is a distinguished cultural epicenter. The neighborhood is home to institutions like the American Museum of Natural History, the New-York Historical Society, the historic Beacon Theatre and Lincoln Center, where audiences can see live opera, jazz, ballet and theater performances. Brunch is a local institution as well; on weekends residents claim their tables (or their spot on the waiting list) at area mainstays like Sarabeth's and Good Enough to Eat. And the parks, playgrounds, children's shows and family-friendly dining make it a great destination for a day on the town with the kids. A short subway ride—or walk—from Times Square, the Upper West Side is an easily accessible gem waiting to be explored.
