"Eat, Worship, and Stay at a hotel - all on one street"

This street offers a swank residential building/extended stay hotel, a European style bakery, and the Church of St. Lazarus. Phillips Club is an extended stay that will house you if you’re feeling wealthy – and this neighborhood is a great one to be wealthy in. If you do decide to live it up in the Upper West Side, you can stumble over to the European Bakery Café for a post-partying eggs Benedict breakfast before heading over to St. Lazarus to confess the previous evening’s sins.

"Boring and not even really residential - but hey, it's where the subway stops!"

West 66th Street is the start of Riverside Drive and Freedom Place, two upscale streets along the Hudson with luxury buildings like Trump Towers. 66th also runs through Central Park, so you'll find that the major bus lines run right along it. While the bus is always slower than the subway, it's nice to be able to get crosstown so easily, which can be quite a challenge living on the Upper West Side.

On the westernmost side of the street, you'll find ABC Studios, but no major shows are taped here and you won't find big stars or crowds of paparazzi. In general, the street has a lot of large buildings with surprisingly few entrances, and you'll find yourself wondering what goes on here. It livens up a bit at the intersection of Broadway and Columbus, where you'll also find the 1 train, but gets subdued again in the block just before the park.

Overall, it's an okay place to live, but you won't really find anything on your own street to eat or do.. other than take the subway elsewhere!

"The City's Tempo"

Walking thorugh the Lincoln Centera rea on 66th st and Broadway really takes on a different beat as the mellifluous sounds from the center, the Opera, and Juliard waft through the air and into the city's footsteps. Almost every review of 66th st will talk about the Lincoln Center and its many toe-tapping contributions to the street. I, however, woud like to point out that one of my favorite movie theatres of all time is located on this street, directly opposite the Lincoln Center. This theatre plays some of the best, and most obscure movies that come out in our times. It furthermore showcases a host of foreign films that are not readily available in other theatres. This theatre offers a comfortable atmosphere, and all you really need is a few snacks from Melissa's Deli across the street and a good attitute to enjoy a night here!

"Lincoln Center Is Fantastic"

This area is a part of the city that really has a heartbeat. First of all, let’s talk about the culture. With the world famous Lincoln Center performance hall and Julliard School of the Arts at its heart, this street is heralded by members of the cities elite with a sweet tooth for the performing arts. During the day, due to its vicinity to the park, this area is filled with tourists and native New Yorkers alike. It is a wonderful place to spend a Saturday afternoon or a Saturday night. With great access to public transportation, plenty of restaurants, and a lot of character, this is one of my favorite places in the Big Apple.
