The Upper West Side isn't exactly the nightlife capital of New York City, it seemed, but it is a pretty awesome place to hang out during the day. If you're a tourist, there's Central Park and the Museum of Natural History. If you're not, there's plenty of shopping, eating, and wandering to do. It's pretty swanky without being pretentious and, hey, I walked right by Alec Baldwin on my way to get some frozen yogurt. Nothing beats that.
