Modern Additions to the Upper West Side

Facade of One Riverside Park

The Upper West Side is typically known for its classic brownstone townhouses that line the streets and are only a short walk away from Central Park. While most of those still stand, over the years the neighborhood has gotten a large amount of modern apartment buildings that give the area a beautiful mix of old and new. Here are three of the hottest and newest additions to the UWS.
