Celebrities on the Upper West Side

Celebrities on the Upper West Side

There are tons of celebrities on the Upper West Side, and it’s certainly not hard to understand! Living on the Upper West Side can be quite relaxing compared to the rest of the city. The residential feel, the many exceptional Upper West Side restaurants and bars, and plus it borders Central Park. So, it comes as no surprise that it’s one of the most popular neighborhoods for celebrities living in NYC. From brownstones, to modern luxury high rises, to pre-war co-ops – the UWS has something for everyone. Here are some people you might recognize on the streets of the Upper West Side.

Yoko Ono

The philanthropist and widow of John Lennon still lives in the same apartment they shared at the famous Dakota. The Beatle’s star was sadly killed outside of the building in 1980.

Michael C. Hall

The star of Dexter purchased a 2 bedroom apartment at the El Dorado in late 2017. He picked up the pad, which features park views, a wood-burning fireplace and a 29 foot foyer,  for $4.3 million.

Alan Alda

This famous New Yorker and legendary actor owns three apartments in the Upper West Side’s Park Millenium condominium. His combined unit is located on the 51st floor of the building, located at 101 West 67th Street.

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway has been an NYC celebrity for a while. The beautiful star of Les Miserables, Alice in Wonderland, and countless other hits purchased a $2.55 million penthouse in a 74th Street co-op with her husband in early 2016, after selling their much larger loft in Dumbo’s Clocktower building.

Amy Schumer

This hilarious comedian has lived in two Upper West Side apartments. She purchased a 4,500 square foot penthouse at 190 Riverside Drive in 2016. This was a big-time upgrade from her previous pad, which was also pretty sweet (a brownstone floor-through on West 80th Street).
