All Central Park castles, luminous townhouses and brownstones, the Upper West side represents Manhattan at its most starkly beautiful. Not without reason, it’s often considered the city’s intellectual hub, with the Natural History Museum as well as Lincoln Center, home of the New York City Ballet, Metropolitan Opera, and New York Philharmonic, taking up residence in the neighborhood.
Columbus Circle, located at the south-eastern end of the Upper West Side is a busy area with many shops and restaurants to choose from. To wow clients or partners, take them to the renowned Per Se or Jean Georges.
Is it the next stop for your business’s headquarters? Consider that rent on the Upper West Side is considerably cheaper than its Upper East Side counterpart, with an average of only $58/sqft. Notable media companies located in the area are Time Warner, ABC, and Sesame Workshop (Sesame Street).
