Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

Not at the outlet at west end. You will to go down a flight of steps to get to the cafe. They have another outlet in the east side but I have not been there, so not sure. Perhaps you can give them a call and check.
