This neighborhood, just north of the very popular Lincoln Center District, is very convenient to public transportation as an express subway station is nearby at Broadway and 72nd Street.

Excellent shopping and many restaurants are nearby and Riverside Park is just a block away. The huge new residential complex developed nearby by Donald Trump and Extell Developmentand known as Riverside South a couple of blocks to the south have added to the neighborhood's retail vitality but have also impacted its congestion.
