West End Avenue
The only avenue whose entire expanse lies within the Upper West Side, this thoroughfare was so much a part of the Upper West Side that they even named it after the neighborhood’s former moniker, the West End. Beginning at 72nd Street (the neighborhood’s historic starting point– parts south were “Lincoln Square”) West End Avenue renamed 35-blocks of eleventh avenue between West 72nd Street and West 107th Street where it merges into Broadway, The Boulevard after Straus Park.
