One of Manhattan’s biggest neighborhoods the UWS stretches from 57th street to 110th street and Hudson River to Central Park West. Because of its size this neighborhood seems to change its face often. Uptown at 110th street the UWS shares many characteristics of neighboring Columbia University with tons of fun bars and restaurants. Below 96th street the UWS is full of cultural havens like Lincoln Center, Museum of Natural history, the Historical Society, and the newly developed Time Warner Center. Arguably the greatest attraction of the UWS is it is nestled in proximity to two major city getaways Riverside and Central Parks.
