    Graze with the sheep in the city that never sleeps

    Nestled between Riverside and Central Parks, the Upper West Side boasts more green space than any other neighborhood in Manhattan. Whether you're picnicking in Central Park's sprawling Sheep Meadow or jogging along the Hudson River, there's a good chance your Upper West Side vacation rental could have a view of more trees than you'd expect in the concrete jungle.

    Where opera lovers and Beatles fanatics can live as one

    While the Upper West Side is most known for its charming residential streets, there's plenty of culture to be found, too. Music-lovers can't miss the Metropolitan Opera House or Lincoln Center, while history buffs will have a field day at the Natural History Museum. Those looking for a more laid-back itinerary will love simply taking in the sights from their Upper West Side vacation rental, or walking around the neighborhood, casually passing iconic spots such as The Dakota or the John Lennon Memorial at Strawberry Fields. The shopping rivals 5th Avenue, while the culinary scene is perfect for al fresco dining.

    From "Summer in the City" to "Autumn in New York"

    There's a reason every season in New York has inspired tons of songs and films, and the Upper West Side is particularly iconic. Winter brings a blanket of snow that quiets the city streets, while spring offers cherry blossoms set against the skyline. Summer is when the city comes alive during the week, especially at night, but empties out almost entirely on the weekends. Fall in New York is crisp, cool, and vibrant, with the leaves glowing red and yellow against the Upper West Side's stunning architecture.

    Running and jumping and rowing and paddling

    Sandwiched between 2 parks, the Upper West Side is known for being much greener than its surrounding neighborhoods. Riverside Park overlooks the Hudson River and neighboring New Jersey, while Central Park has plenty of space to run and jump, or row and paddle. Of course much of the park is well tended, but some trails do offer a more rugged experience, ideal for bird-watching or horseback riding. Catch the sunset from the Sheep Meadow, or climb up high to 1 of the many rooftop bars in the neighborhood, and watch the lights begin to twinkle over the Big Apple.
