I am just now getting used to the UWS. Six years in, almost.
I think it is just the neighbors that I like, though. And RSD.

UWS > UES, IMO

If in midtown and in need of peace and quiet (or for calls of nature) then use hotel lobbies. Clean, open 24/7.

Seemed like a better option than one of those coin-operated public toilet things.

I got diverted at 106 onto Park which is a one lane shitfest. Finally made it over to Lex and then spent 35 minutes looking for parking which I found at 2nd and 89. I was going to Madison and 86.

This was a local place that was packed. If it wouldn't have been a pain in the ass I would sent everything back.

 

Oh well.

in any event, we might be making a move up to Harlem.

I do. My car is in my building and normally that's a 15 minute drive with easy parking. 

 

Where? West, central or east? Above or below 125? The sweet spot would be a brownstone below and west, but be prepared for a little sticker shock.

IDK yet. Looking at Central/East and below. Must be "pet friendly".
post #6309 of 11541

Best deals are in the East, though you have shittier restaurants and are a slave to the 4/5/6. Think about that.

How many days between now and Halloween will it not be necessary to carry an umbrella? 4? Less?

Doh, good call. No idea why I didn't think of that ...

Once again, you're correct.  Carl Shurz Park and the general Gracie Sq/East End Ave is the only oasis in this neighborhood.   This is where we spend all our time because thoughts of collective suicide come to mind when roaming any of the UES avenues from Lex to York.

3rd ave from the low 80's to the low 70's is quite nice.

No

no tourist clogged streets either, the main problem with most parts of downtown
