The Upper West Side is the site of unforgettable, fictional movie moments. It’s the place where star-crossed lovers Tony and Maria met their fates in West Side Story; it’s the place where Wall Street’s Bud Fox—played by young Charlie Sheen—puts Michael Douglas in jail; it’s the place where—in Vanilla Sky—Tom Cruise irrevocably disfigures his face as he and Cameron Diaz plummet into the Hudson from Riverside Park. The Upper West Side—including the Lincoln Center and Manhattan Valley neighborhoods—spans from West 59th Street to West 110thStreet between Central Park and the Hudson River. It’s obvious why the neighborhood is a constant presence in movies: the residents’ colorful personalities and the integration of the old and new charm onlookers.
