The area of the Upper West Side which includes the West 60's and West 70's is one of the most diverse and dynamic, yet at the same time relaxed and community oriented, neighborhoods in all of Manhattan. Anchored on the south by Columbus Circle, with the Deutsche Bank (formerly Time Warner) Center, Mandarin Oriental Hotel and restaurant and shopping complex, Mount Sinai Hospital, Fordham University and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, to the east by Central Park, to the west by Riverside Boulevard, Riverside Park and the Hudson River, and to the north by the American Museum of Natural History, the Hayden Planetarium and Zabar's, the neighborhood blends an eclectic mix of elegant classic and modern residential living with familiar small business mainstays and some of the most upscale local and national shopping in town, spurred by the Lincoln Square Business Improvement District in its midst. More great restaurants are within easy walking distance than could ever be sampled, and a stroll to Broadway's theater district before or after dinner takes less than 20 minutes. Some of the best public and private schools in the City, from pre-school through graduate school, are close by, as are religious institutions of almost every denomination. Public transportation is easily and plentifully available. In short, not much is more than a stone's throw away.
The convenience of a quick walk to stock up at Zabar's, Fairway, Citarella, Morton Williams, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and then dessert from Magnolia Bakery, is immeasurable, and envied by many of the area residents more geographically challenged friends and acquaintances. So too, is the easy access to many of the less famous, but just as rewarding other local treasures that have been providing an array of goods and services to generations of neighborhood residents.
At the other end of the consuming spectrum is the Broadway corridor of upscale local and national shopping, from The Gap, Lululemon, Pottery Barn, Nordstroms, Bloomingdales Outlet, Filene's Basement and the bustling West Side Apple Store. And in the midst of all that, when you need a break from all of that shopping, sit back and relax at the AMC Theatre multiplex, with its 12 screens and giant IMAX theater, just a block and a half from Lincoln Towers.
Getting around from Lincoln Towers is easy, and you need not be Uber-dependent. Two subway stops (an express at 72nd Street and a local at 66th Street) on the West Side IRT line (the 1, 2 and 3 trains) are within two or three blocks of Lincoln Towers, and seven bus lines (the M104, M5, M7 and M11 going north and south, and the M57, M66, and M72 going crosstown) stop even closer. There is plenty of parking at Lincoln Towers (four indoor garages and hundreds of private outdoor spaces) for those who need or want to keep a car in the City, and easy access to the West Side Highway at 72nd Street for reverse commuters or for just getting out of town.
