What are you thankful for on the Upper West Side? Tell us things about the neighborhood that make you glad you live or work here.
The Upper West Side is flanked by two magnificent parks and a wide and beautiful river. It comprises world-class cultural institutions, abundant educational institutions, wonderful hospitals and healthcare facilities, public transportation, restaurants, shops, and numerous charitable organizations aiding the less fortunate among us.
Granted these are frighteningly turbulent times – on the local, national, global, and planetary levels – and there always seems to be a new crisis to supplant or enhance the last. Now, it’s another war that is further polarizing the populace. But as one wise UWS psychotherapist said, we live on many levels, and one is the everyday. So, let’s take a breather from the turmoil and focus on what we have to be thankful for.
Here’s what you have to do:

(There’s a link below to help you.)
We will tabulate the results and the winner(s) will be the person or persons whose answers correspond to the highest-ranked answers submitted by all participants. The winners will receive their choice of three (3) highly coveted items from the West Side Rag Shop.
