WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE THE UPPER WEST SIDE
New York City’s five boroughs may occasionally engage in some interborough rivalries—not to mention the Subway Series and its loyal partisans—with each staking a claim to preeminence. And within each borough, there are, of course, distinctive neighborhoods, each with its own personality and history. However, when it comes time to find a place to call one’s home in the city, few neighborhoods can offer up the special blend of culture, proximity to parks and greenery, and restaurants like the Upper West Side. Living in one of Algin Management’s no-fee apartments in NYC’s Upper West Side means you’re just walking distance from a host of some of New York’s finest and most iconic destinations.
Firstly, when it comes to fine dining, the Upper West Side is home to an embarrassment of
riches. Maison Pickle, a classic eatery with a stylish decor, features true bistro comfort food and American classics—with a selection of signature dishes like French dip sandwiches, moules and steak frites, salads, seafood, desserts, and a delightful menu of cocktails, spirits, wine, and beer. Sarabeth’s may be known for its premium jams, but New Yorkers have long appreciated this beloved institute for its homestyle cooking and one of the best brunches in the city. Meanwhile, Lincoln Ristorante serves authentic Italian cuisine with ingredients sourced from local sources, including the Upper West Side’s own Tucker Square Greenmarket.
The Upper West Side is also home to some of New York’s most storied cultural institutions. The Museum of Modern Art, with its impressive and wide-sweeping collections of sculptures, paintings, and drawings, among other works, is widely regarded as one of the most important museums of modern art in the world. While known by a younger generation of filmgoers from the blockbuster A Night at the Museum with actor Ben Stiller, the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) has been steadily attracting visitors for over a century. Today, the museum houses more than 34 million specimens of mammals, rocks, meteorites, and plants. In addition to its permanent collection, the AMNH has an ongoing rotation of events—like its current special exhibitions on sharks, our solar system, and “dazzling diamonds”—sure to pique interest among visitors of all ages.
Of course, the Upper West Side is ideally located between Riverside Park and Central Park—the green, beating heart of the city and a short walk away from Algin Management’s UWS rentals.
