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.
I took my 7 year old for a few hours on a Saturday morning. We didn’t have a line to wait in and we breezed right in. We both loved it!! We didn’t have enough time to see everything so we picked a few things we both wanted to check out and away we went. The dinosaur exhibits are huge...
This isn’t quite a hidden gem, but it is not mentioned often on lists of Must Do activities in New York. It should be.
The Historical Society is a well-arranged collection of treasures, most notably the Audubon art and the Tiffany lamp collection. You’ll also find Picasso here, and locks of hair from several notable Americans. Seriously, this place covers...
"Excellent and includes Nat History Museum admission "

Saw ‘Worlds Beyond Earth’ with our two girls ages 12 and 14. Show was 30 minutes. The educational walk around the planetarium sphere is excellent. We all enjoyed the show, but you have to buy tickets that includes the Natural History Museum, so leave enough time to explore the museum, too.
We visited during a school vacation, late in a bad-weather week, but from the other reviews I suspect it's always this crowded.
The 1- and 2-year-olds we visited with were happy to run around, only briefly engaging with an activity, but could have spent hours here.
You will need 1:1 supervision of smaller kids because there is so much which...
These are the best cookies I have ever had they might even be the best cookies in the world they couldn’t be better they are truly amazing and as the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang they are truly scrumptious.
I'm really picky about my hummus and falafel, so when friends highly recommended this place, I came here cautiously, but was happily surprised. The hummus and falafel are freshly made and delicious, and come in different options. I liked the fava hummus (with hard boiled eggs on top), especially with the whole wheat pita on the side. They also make...
We went late after a show at Beacon Theater. They serve food until 12:30pm fyi. There were 2 of us and we ordered WAY too much food - especially for a late night bite. But... it was really good! We had Meatballs that were covered in melted cheese. They have a bit of a Tex Mex spice to them. We...
Such a cute bakery. The coffee and treats were delicious and the staff were so friendly. It is located in the Hotel Belleclaire but has an outside entrance so you do not have to be staying there to enjoy.
Another great stay at the Beacon. Even the least expensive rooms are nicely decorated, very clean and each has a kitchenette. Staff are knowledgeable, pleasant and helpful. Upper west-side location is great - walking distance from Central Park, museums, Lincoln Centre, restaurants, transit plus Fairway and Zabars for food. Kid friendly and non-smoking.
"Very comfortable and nicely decortated and laid out lobby and rooms."

Rooms and lobby were extremely comfortable and nicely laid out, the lobby especially with both conversation groupings and more private spaces. My only reservation was finding the lobby engaged in a private function one night so that it was not available to paying hotel guests.
Have stayed at the Lucerne many times, since 2003. Good rooms, efficient service, great location for museums and Lincoln Center. One block walk to the Broadway Subway, re getting downtown. Good restaurants close. Zabar's 2 blocks away.Concierge helpful re tkts, restaurants.
I loved staying at this hotel about a year ago. It is charming, close to transportation, Central Park and restaurants. The rooms are attractive as is the general sitting area outside the reception area. I would stay there again however, they've raised their prices considerably and that is now a big dent in what is affordable in my budget.
Hotel Belleclare is on the East side of Central Perk. It has good subway and bus routes close by. There are plenty of bakerys and restaurants within walking distance.
The hotel itself is an old character building. We stayed in a family room which had one room with two good sized singles beds and an ajoining room with a large...
