Hidden Spots of the Upper West Side

Hidden Spots of the Upper West Side

The Upper West Side has plenty of familiar icons and institutions such as the Lincoln Center, Columbus Circle, and the American Museum of Natural History. The neighborhood is widely known for its charming brownstones, cosmopolitan ambiance, and notable residents. However, many West Siders go about their day to day without noticing some of their neighborhood’s most treasured spots. From rooftop gardens to quaint pocket parks, here’s our guide to the neighborhood’s hidden gems. It’s time to go out and explore!

Pomander Walk

In a neighborhood with many secret spots, Pomander Walk takes the hidden jewel crown. Inspired by a popular play in the 1920’s set in London, this charming street borrows many of its architectural features from England. It was originally referred to as a colony and the Tudor-like design served a stark contrast against New York City’s futuristic backdrop. Pomander Walk recently underwent a renovation that earned the distinction of a “Building Rehabilitation Award”. The fairytale-like block counts with 27 buildings and 61 units but rare is the instance when one of them surfaces on the market. Travel back in time and visit this NYC landmark found on 95th St. and West End Ave.
