The Upper West Side is one of NYC’s most beloved neighborhoods. What’s not to like? Old-school brownstones and beautiful prewars create a laid-back feel. It all sits in between Riverside Park and Central Park, with great shopping and foodie classics like Zabar’s and Barney Greengrass. Plus, it’s home to both Lincoln Center and the American Museum of Natural History. If you dream of scoring a deal in this iconic New York neighborhood, we’ve got you covered. Here are 5 Upper West Side apartments for rent, from studios to 2-bedrooms, all available now.
Our first Upper West Side apartment is set in a prewar elevator building right near Riverside Park. Not too shabby! Huge windows and hardwood floors throughout the space provide a bright and airy feel. There’s an eat-in kitchen with lots of cabinet space, too, and a chic white bathroom. In addition, the building has shared laundry and is just a couple blocks from the 1 train. Listed by George Arana and Joel Stanger of Brown Harris Stevens.
This studio boasts 11-foot ceilings, which allows ample room for a windowed sleeping loft. Exposed brick walls and wood accents add a classic touch. The kitchen is small but mighty with a full-size fridge and oven and extra cabinet space around a corner. And the prime location — between Amsterdam and Columbus — puts you close to Central Park and 5 different train lines. Listed by Kyle Rogers of Corcoran.
