Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our tour on Father's Day with JP and NYC Jaunts! From Fraunces Tavern to Stone Street, Whitehorse, and McSorley's - JP made it unique, fun, and intoxicating (pun intended)... JP's knowledge of not only the bars and beers but of NYC through and through was quite informative and full of... More

I had a great time with JP and a small group on the High Line walking tour. JP is incredibly knowledgable about NYC and very personable. The end to the tour isn't really the end, but just the beginning of good times at Hoggs & Heiffers! Nick

When traveling, I like to get to know how locals live their lives - for instance what it is like going for some beers with New Yorkers. I joined the historic bar crawl with NYC Jaunts, and got exactly the experience I am looking for. A tour through different pubs, lead by a competent guide who provided a great mix... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
