Beautiful view on the UWS, Manhattan

New York, NY, United States
2 Kudos
Flag
The Upper West Side is a beautiful area in New York City that stretches along the west side of Central Park. The area is more residential than other popular areas in NYC, but it still has plenty of great restaurants, stores and cultural activities. It is a great neighborhood to explore.
