The Ansonia occupies its epicenter: herself proudly named the Address of the West Side, Princess Ansonia figures in all the books about NY: if not pictured on the cover, may be in the centerfold. Architectural richness (much of this area is recorded historic landmark), Cultural abundance (the Who is Who in Dance, Music and Cinematography hides here somewhere, ghost or alive), Restaurants (have you invited your honey to the Cafe des Artistes yet?) and Museums (Natural History and the amazing Rose Planetarium, the Children Museum, etc) are synonym to this irresistible neighborhood.
