Pros:

The Savannah is a building built in the 1980s, much newer comparatively, in an area where most buildings were built in the 1900s. The building itself is in tip top condition and modern compared to other buildings in the area where you still see air conditioners hanging outside of the windows.

-Beautiful lobby
-Building link system for dry cleaning and delivery packages
-Central air and heat
-Trash chute on the floor
-Communal washer and dryer on each floor
-Gym in the basement
-Roofdeck

The proximity of the building to both Riverside Park and Central Park is amazing. It is literally central in between the two and takes about 10 minutes walking distance to get to.

Close proximity to all the different restaurants on Broadway, Amsterdam and Columbus.

Cons:

Because our unit faces Broadway, that being a heavily trafficked street, and we are in the middle of the building and not a high floor, it can be noisy at times such as when a fire truck or police car comes through. I would assume it is not as noisy if you are facing 89th street or if you lived in a building on West End or Riverside.

Because we have a newborn, the only other complaint I would have is that I wish there was a small playroom. Kids get antsy in small apartments and need room to run around so it's tough to live in the city sometimes. I've seen some other buildings in the area have real cool playrooms.

Being a family oriented neighborhood, there isn't too much of a nightlife around here. There are a few cocktail bars but nothing compared to midtown and downtown.

Other comments:

Overall, we loved the upper west side due to the proximity to Riverside park so we made it a mission to buy a place up here before our first child was born. The neighborhood is extremely conducive to raising a family. We went to a ton of open houses on the UWS. We didn't care that most of the buildings in the area were super old. Besides the AC outside of windows, we are talking trash and recycling bins outside of your front door and many buildings with units that have service entrances. Many old buildings also do not have ideal floor plan layouts. In that sense we were very fortunate that a unit in the Savannah became available that was in our price range.

If you are looking in the UWS area and come across a unit in the Savannah whether you buy or rent, I highly recommend living here.
