"Ideal location for culture vultures"

In the city that never sleeps, West 60th Street and its environs at time appear to be the most awake of all. While more residential neighborhoods of the city can feel like a village-within-a-metropolis, the urbane elements of New York are all constantly at play here: shoppers can head to the sleek chrome-and-glass Time Warner Building, where luxurious brands like Whole Foods and Sisley have made their home alongside edgy new restaurants and a purpose-built jazz centre, while fans of the arts have their work cut out for them: Lincoln Center is home to some of the city's best music, art, dance, and cinema. Even fitness freaks will be pleased to note that West 60th Street is bounded by two of the city's best outdoor spaces: to the east, there's lush central Park, while the west leads to the bicycle path that heads down West Side Highway (and its attendant basketball courts, jogging track, and cafes that line the riverside park.) The area is also home to branches of a number of universities, including Fordham and the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. While, with the exception of Gabriel's, most dining options lie a block or two further south, this still constitutes less than a two-minute walk for your average New Yorker. With this much culture in a few-block radius, why ever even cross the park?
  • Tons of culture
  • Proximity to parks
  • Proximity to Time Warner Building
  • Lots of university campuses
  • Noisy, busy

"A very beautiful street that is home to Tavern On the Green."

Most people think the upper west side is quite boring, but there is a lot to do on this street. This street is in the middle of Amsterdam Ave and central park west. You can walk to Central Park in less than ten minutes and Tavern On the Green is right down the block. There are many luxurious apartment buildings on this street. They seem to be nicer the closer they are to Central Park. Nick and Toni's Cafe is on W 67th and they have the best thin crust chicken pizza! This street is very safe and a great place to live.
