Central Park West (CPW) is an avenue that runs north-south in the New York City borough (New York City) of Manhattan. As its name indicates, CPW forms the western edge of Central Park. It also forms the eastern boundary of the Upper West Side. It runs 51 blocks from Columbus Circle (at 59th Street, or Central Park South) to Frederick Douglass Circle (at 110th Street, or Cathedral Parkway). South of Columbus Circle, in Midtown, CPW becomes Eighth Avenue. North of Frederick Douglass Circle, in Harlem, it is alternately known as Eighth Avenue or Frederick Douglass Boulevard. Unlike many Manhattan avenues, CPW has traffic running in two directions.
Central Park West is the address of many famous residences, including the Dakota (where John Lennon lived), the San Remo, the El Dorado, the Beresford, and the Majestic. Most of these housing cooperatives were built around 1930, replacing late 19th century hotels with the same names. Other landmarks and institutions along its length include the New-York Historical Society and the American Museum of Natural History. The area from 61st to 97th Streets is included in the Central Park West Historic District.
