When it comes to finding New York City luxury real estate, there is no sub-market quite like the Upper West Side condo market. The area technically defined as the Upper West Side, actually makes up a much larger portion of New York City than many people assume. Technically, the Upper West Side goes from Central Park West to the Hudson River and 59th Street to 110th Street, excluding the Columbus Circle area. While the area is, in general, known for having some of the most luxurious homes in the city, there is more to know about the Upper West Side condo market and the properties that make it so unique.
Throughout the Upper West Side, many find that there are several different pockets within the neighborhood. Approximately every ten blocks, or so, there are different areas of homes each with their unique flavor and style. Some blocks have pre-war apartments, also known as “Classic Six” apartments, or condos with two bedrooms, a living room, a dining room and a kitchen. There are also some “Classic Seven” apartments in different areas, which are homes with everything that a “Classic Six” has but with a room with space for a maid or staff member, or for a home office.
These types of classic Upper West Side condos can be found throughout the neighborhood, particularly in the 70s and 80s blocks of the region. However, along the infamous Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side, there are other grand-scale apartment buildings that are far more modern. Here, you will find Upper West Side condo buildings that boast river views and plenty of amenities. Visit the southern portion of the Upper West Side and you will also find homes that have convenient access to the infamous Timer Warner Center. Here you will find some of the most luxurious homes and condos in the city and access to restaurants, cafes and high end eateries.
While each area of the Upper West Side may have some of its own unique characteristics, there is one thing that is for certain: any home in this area will have the reputation of being one of the most luxurious NYC homes in some of the best locations in the city.
