"Classy old New York feel, close to nature and culture, quiet and serene."

W. 88th St. is a great place for those looking for a mature neighborhood with lots of amenities. A short walk to both Central and Riverside parks, (specifically the Central Park reservoir, great lawn and turtle pond!), museums, wonderful restaurants, and fantastic shopping on Broadway - both chains and boutiques,you'll find you'll rarely need to leave your neighborhood! The public schools in the area are wonderful, and if you sit in one of the cute outdoor cafes you'll see many strollers and young families pass you by. There are 24 hour pharmacies, delis and restaurants that deliver in the middle of the night. The area is very pretty at night and very safe. Public transportation is easy to access and quickly gets you downtown. While there are plenty of great places to eat and enjoy a glass of wine, the night life is really pretty sedate and tame. But if you like to party elsewhere and come home someplace calm and quiet you'll love this street!
