5. Born and raised in Manhattan.....
Location, Location, Location the 3 most important factors in real estate. This is a very good neighborhood. A good friend of mine is stationed in a firehouse very close to that address and he loves it. Great access to subway and bus service. 15-20 minutes to Wall Street less than that to mid-town. Shopping is top-notch, everything you need is right there within walking distance. Close to Zabars, a food lovers heaven. Grays Papaya home of legendary hot dogs, great bar/restaurant, The City Grill on 73rd and Columbus. Brunos Ravioli on B'way and some great bakeries all over the area. The price seems to be in line with Manhattan real estate which is way over the top. $550 per sq.ft. seems high but it is the upper West side. If the guy wants to live in Manhattan, he has to be prepared to pay. Biggest draw back..almost impossible to park. Leave the car in Kansas. Good luck and welcome to the Apple.
