Our top Upper West Side moving tips

Though the exact bounds are up for debate, it’s generally understood that the Upper West Side runs the length of Central Park’s west side. To the north, you’ll find Morningside Heights and Harlem. To the south, you’ll run into Hell’s Kitchen. It spans across 50 blocks of Manhattan.

The neighborhood is largely residential. However, don’t let that fool you; there’s lots to see and explore with its shopping, restaurants, bars, and exciting amenities.

But, before you drop your first box of belongings off, there’s more to know about living in this part of NYC:

  • Cost of living: Much like their fellow Manhattanites, UWS dwellers will find that the cost of living is expensive, with housing being at the top of that list. In this part of the borough, the average rent is over $4100 for a 1 bedroom apartment. For those in the market to purchase a home, the median home price clocks in at a whopping $1.6 million — with a median cost of $1,800 per square foot. That said, the costs that are the same across the city is 8.875% combined city and state sales tax on purchased products and the cost of public transportation with the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) at $2.75 per ride on subways and buses.
  • Neighborhood sites: The city is bursting at the seams with all that demands your attention and this neighborhood is no exception. Even with that knowledge, you’ll find there’s much to discover right within your own “backyard”. You could easily spend many afternoons sharing space with the giant whale at the American Museum of Natural History at 79th street and Central Park West or dusting off history lessons a few blocks down at the New York Historical Society. If old things and handcrafted goods appeal to you, then you’re going to love the artisan-made and vintage finds at the Grand Bazaar on W 77th street and Columbus Avenue. It’s home to NYC’s largest weekly market. For those who desire dance, yearn for songs, or view musical performances as must-haves, the main campus of the Lincoln Center, is located between West 62nd and 65th streets and features world-class performances.
  • Dining out: From breakfast to dinner and all opportunities to munch in between, you won’t have to go far to find your favorite neighborhood flavor. Freshly baked biscuits abound at the southern-inspired Jacob’s Pickles restaurant (brunch anyone?). Perhaps you’re setting your sights on a sensational dining experience. If that’s the case, look no further than Bouloud Sud by chef Daniel Bouloud, featuring upscale Mediterranean fare. Up on 69th street, you’ll also find the famed Magnolia Bakery, known for exceptional banana pudding and the cutest cupcakes. Got friends with different dietary needs seeking sweet stuff? Van Leeuwen is a place that vegan and die-hard dairy lovers can both find swoon-worthy swirls of frozen creamy goodness. More good news: there’s a location on Columbus Ave and one on Amsterdam Ave in UWS. Talk about double scoops from double locations — right where you live!
  • Parks big and small: Being situated alongside Central Park, you won’t be too far from this iconic greenspace whenever you’re near home. That means you can enjoy all the events (such as free outdoor concerts in the summer) and scenery within a reasonable distance. If your outdoor time seems best spent along the Hudson river, you can check out Riverside Park, which stretches for 4 miles between 72nd and 158th streets. And, if you’re on wheels, you’re in luck. Among its features are a skate park and part of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, which is perfect for bike riding. The park is also home to a few sculptural features, including the Joan of Arc memorial statue at 93rd street (the first statue of a non-fictional woman by a woman, Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington, in NYC) and the Soldiers and Sailors monument at 89th and Riverside. The UWS is also home to one of NYC’s smallest places to be outdoors: Septuagesimo Uno Park. Nestled in between buildings in a small lot, it’s a great place to grab some shade and a seat to enjoy the neighborhood.
  • Historic homes and apartments: This neck of Manhattan had a boom in apartment buildings from the 1800s to the early 1900s. Whether you’re searching out a storied place to call your own or just a fan of historical architecture, you’ll be happy to know several are still standing. You can make your way towards Belnord and the Apthorp buildings, both erected in 1908. Then there’s also the San Remo luxury apartment building, located between W. 74th and 75th street in 1930, which is home to many celebrities. The history doesn’t stop there. The Upper West Side was also home to some colossal mansions. One such home was the largest in Manhattan at the time it was built, between 1902 and 1906, and belonged to steel tycoon Charles M. Schwab.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

  • star star star star star

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

  • star star star star star

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
