Short for "Upper West Side", a neighborhood in New York City, generally starts anywhere from West 66th to 72nd (right above Columbus Circle/Lincoln Square) and goes up until West 125th Street (Harlem). Predominantly white, upper/middle class neighborhood between Central and Riverside Parks and has historically been the home to many artists, performers, writers and liberal thinkers.
We're heading to the Upper West tonight to chill by Columbia and then go drinking on Columbus Ave in the 80s. You going?
