The Upper West Side differentiates itself from the Upper East Side in allowing for a healthy mix between residential and commercial properties. It is also a marvelous mix of cultures, ages and income groups of all New York communities. Fruit stands, gourmet markets and sidewalk book vendors abound and shoppers enjoy the aroma of good cooking and fresh candy. The housing options reflect the mix of its residents: everything from luxury high-rises to pre-war doormen buildings to railroad style walk-up homes. Generally, the farther north you go, the better the deal. The Upper West Side is also filled with beautifully maintained brownstones and wealthy enclaves. Subways run alongside Central Park West and Broadway, making the commute to Midtown and Downtown fast and comfortable. Riverside Park is an oasis by Hudson River that bring out the neighbors to enjoy beautiful sunsets. The other main attraction is the American Museum of Natural History, the size of 4 city blocks, where you need a week to see all it offers.
