The Upper West Side Rental Scene

Considered the place du jour amongst many of New York's young professionals, the Upper West Side rental options are some of the hottest rental neighborhoods in the city. Competition for apartments is fierce and rents are on the rise. Upper West Side apartments for rent are bounded by Morningside Heights/110th Street to the north and Hells Kitchen/60th Street to the south: Central Park is on its east side and the Hudson River on the west.

Apartment Rental on the Upper West Side Has Charm, Culture

Walking down certain streets of this Manhattan neighborhood you could easily think you've been transported to Paris. Many Upper West Side apartments for rent were developed around the turn of the century, when the West Side was filled with beautiful brownstones, grand apartment buildings and charming tree-lined streets. Wanting to create a certain majesty and refinement, many of the area's architects borrowed elements of design from respected European structures. Although they were built hoping to attract the upper class, many of these buildings and homes were actually occupied by middle and working class families when developers became desperate during the Depression.

Because of its demographics, the neighborhood gained a reputation for being a hotbed of political activism and a stronghold for social tolerance. Today, however, you're more likely to see the crowd the original developers were hoping to attract to a typical apartment rental on the Upper West Side.
