"West 110th is an up and coming street in NYC"

Frequented mostly by Columbia University students, many aren't aware of the unique cafes and shops that are popping up further east on 110th Street closer to Central Park. With the renovation of Frederic Douglas Circle, new businesses are flocking to this area that is changing for the better. Check out the trendy little cafe below Towers on the Park close to Central Park West. Shop at the gourmet grocery store on the south side of the street while you are there.

"Near 1 train"

What’s nice about W 110th st is that it’s near a 1 train subway stop. The M6, M104, and M4 bus lines also stop here. This street is busier and slightly larger than the other streets nearby. This street is more detached from Columbia University than streets slightly to the north of it, but there is one Columbia undergraduate dorm on the street. There are some nice businesses near W 110th st and Broadway, including Chipotle which has the best burritos and the drug store Rite Aid, which sometimes has cheaper stuff than the ubiquitous New York, Duane Reade which is also located nearby.

"On W 110 St"

W 110 St runs from the northwestern tip of Central Park to the Hudson River. It is well connected to public transportation and hosts many small and useful shops. However, it is definitely not a lively street. In any case, it is a good place where to live. Particularly nice is the part close to the Hudson River, where you can take a car-free stroll in the Riverside Park. For the one interested in historical building, the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine is right there.

"In need of revitalization"

W. 110th street has solid potential, but it needs a city that believes in it to thrive. The street has a solid location and great transportation options. There are many small businesses and service type shops along the way which is a great service to the people who live here, but overall the area has a depressed feel to it. It's not necessarily run down or dirty, it simply feels old and uncared for. With a bit of sprucing up it would be a wonderful location, especially closest to Riverside drive. It's not a bad place to live though in any event and it's fairly convenient and reasonable.

hudson This street borders Columbia University - a lot of students and Columbia people are there. I love the restaurants along Amsterdam Ave in this neighborhood - I used to hang out quite a bit at the Hungarian Pastry shop, which is legendary among area writers. And yes, near Riverside, the apartments are very nice - older buildings, but nice. Not a doorman type area, but really a solid place for anyone who is interested in the upper west side and especially for Columbia people.

"West 110th Street"

There’s really not a lot going on this street, though you will find various small businesses and things to do. I wasn’t very impressed and thought that the area was generally run down, but you might find more to like on other blocks nearby. All in all, an average street in the Brooklyn.

"Pretty ok of a street - for uptown : )"

At Broadway and 110th, there are a lot of stores that real people need. On the southeast corner there is a Gristedes supermarket that is clean & has a good selection. On the southwest corner there is a drug store. Just two blocks up there is a Citibank, the Heights (a bar/grill), and just north of 110 on broadway is a fruit/vegetable stand. Along 110, there are just well maintained apartments and it is relatively safe to walk down the street. A good thing to note, is that late at night, cabs are plenty here because of the fact that the cabbies use 110 as a cross-over street. At Amsterdam & 110 there is a good pizza place V&T and across the street from that is St. John the Divine & at the other corner of 110 & amsterdam is a Jewish synagoge.

"West 110th Street"

Easily access at the Cathedral Parkway stop of the 1 train, you'll be let off right in the heart of the Columbia University Campus. You'll find all of the conveniences of any neighborhood and some good housing options. This is a good street for young adults and singles, as well as young couples, though it's difficult to find anything that doesn't have something to do with Columbia around here.

"Not What It Used To Be But OK"

West 110th Street, as recently as just 5 years ago, had a lot of comfy feelings to it; there was a great family-owned market that has since closed, a marvelous Chinese (proper Chinese, not discount) restaurant on the corner of Broadway, smaller stores (there was a wonderful bagel place next to the Chinese restaurant). Since Columbia University has been developing so much real estate, there are new skyscrapers, many, many stores have closed and a lot of the feeling of it is gone or irrevocably changed. It does cross a lot of great streets, including Broadway and Amsterdam, but I think it's becoming somewhat homogenized.
