Manhattan Apartment Rental Info
Upper West Side (Manhattan Apartments) Neighborhood Information for Apartment Renters
- Upper West Side
Co-ops and condos dominate the Upper West Side housing options, but there are many rentals still available. NoFeeRentDirect.com seeks out the small landlords so we can give you access to the brownstone one-bedroom, or the co-op sublease, or a furnished short-term rental.
"You've Got Mail" and "Seinfeld" are just two of the many movies and TV shows filmed on the Upper West Side because this is a scenic and romantic part of town. Tree-lined streets with grand brownstone entrances make for a perfect Hollywood photo op, except the Upper West Side is REAL.
This is New York's most suburban-like area. It's family friendly, with Zabar's, Fairway, and Citarella's leading the grocery shopping list. Central Park and Riverside Park are wonderful playgrounds. People here are socially and politically active, and fight to preserve the charm of their neighborhood against any excessive commercial intrusion.
