Central Park West | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Home to some of New York City’s most famous buildings like The Dakota, with its enchanting architecture, and the equally impressive San Remo just a couple streets away, Central Park West is one of the most eye-popping neighborhoods to live in. 

It is historically renowned for its blending of architecture and residential living. So much so, that it earned a listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. It is thought to have some of the most diverse and beautiful skylines in all of New York and has drawn celebrity residents for decades

If world-class architecture isn’t enough for you, there are plenty of warm brownstones to be found as well. There is so much to do in Central Park West, the most obvious being in the name of the neighborhood itself. With Central Park running the length of one of its borders, there’s easy access to the park and all its wonders, running trails, row boats, and bridges. If you prefer the indoors, the American Museum of Natural History is at your service. 

There are few places in the world that can match Central Park West’s varied combination of urban and residential charm, elegance, and spirit.
