    "The upper west side, or Bloomingdale, where we live, is a lovely neighborhood full of parks, playgrounds and decent restaurants. We can easily walk to Columbia University and use their campus regularly. It is a true “neighborhood” feel, where you know the people in the different stores, speak to the doormen around the neighborhood and connect with neighbors in the park and the dog park. We love living here with young children! It is also convenient to subway and bus but also easy to take a citibike up or downtown on the riverside bike/running paths. "

Take an Xpress bus across town to the UES for more possibilities. No car necessary at all. And the walking is fantastic, with Central Park and Riverside Park right nearby. There’s no place else in the city I’d rather live. "
