When one of our favorite local breakfast places in the Upper West Side (Sugar and Plumm) turned out to be out of business, we opted to eat at Nice Matin instead. Our server was friendly and attentive, and truly was excellent at her job. Hats...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
