The Historic Upper West Side

Central Park West Skyline

Bounded by Central Park on the east and the Hudson River on the west, the Upper West Side stretches from 59th Street to 125th Street, including Morningside Heights. Known for its pre-war low rise historic buildings like the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the Dakota Apartments, Columbia University, Lincoln Center, and several others, the Upper West Side was originally home to Dutch immigrants in the early and mid-seventeenth century.
