Cheap hotels in Upper West Side to Harlem, New York

More laid-back, and allegedly more intellectual, than its East-Side cousin, the Upper West Side is a largely residential area, filled with tall apartment buildings and stately brownstones. This area, which begins at Columbus Circle and ends at Morningside Heights, is home to the Lincoln Center, the American Museum of Natural History, and Columbia University. However, one of its greatest attributes may be its borders: sandwiched between the iconic Central Park and leisurely Riverside Park, greenery is never more than a few blocks away.

Famous Harlem, whose importance as a historically African-American neighborhood cannot be matched, begins north of Morningside Heights. Despite its dangerous reputation, Harlem has become much safer... and much more popular with tourists.
