"Truly Boring"

W 63rd (both parts of it) are dead ends in more ways than one. The park views aren't great, there isn't much to see or do, and 64th or 59th are more interesting to travel west on - by bike or by foot. West 63rd actually deserves some credit for keeping up it's appearance despite being bordered by so many high traffic areas - problem is (except for residents), those are more fun to walk on or even live on.

"Tourist friendly, relatively quiet for residents"

This street is populated with entertainment choices – if you’re a resident you can check out the West Side YMCA, and if you’re just visiting and happen to be wandering in the area, you can head over to the New York City Ballet Box Office located here. If you want to burn your money or if you only stay at swank hotels when you’re visiting the city, you can stay on this street at Empire Hotel, a gorgeous wooden decked gem of a hotel.

"A Little Treasure Street"

George Balanchine Way is a segment of West 63rd Street that was renamed for the founder of the New York City Ballet in June of 1990. On the western end is the Empire, a building that was first an inexpensive hotel for people to live, then an expensive hotel for people to visit and is now condos! Its biggest purpose or attraction, of course, is that it leads directly to the New York State Theater, where Balanchine created so much for the New York City Ballet, and in general to the theatres and plaza at Lincoln Center (Metropolitan Opera, Avery Fisher Hall, the Vivian Beaumont Theatre, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and Damrosch Park). An incredible place to be.
