Uptown NYC Neighborhood Guide

World-class museums, amazing parks and playgrounds, family-friendly neighborhoods like the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side, and tons of kid-centric services and amenities make Uptown Manhattan a fabulous place to live or visit. The American Museum of Natural History and the Children's Museum of Manhattan are perennial family favorites, but Museum Mile institutions like the Metropolitan are also great for kids and often offer free with admission family programs. Want to play outside? Central Park could keep you busy for a lifetime, but you don't want to miss all of the great playgrounds in Riverside Park. Hopefully the neighborhood guides, articles and other resources on this page will help spark your adventures.
