Apartment Therapy recently launched a reader-submitted neighborhood guide, and Sarah's Upper West Side edition gives a quick run-down of the area's best spots that's especially good for anyone new to the UWS. With brunch suggestions, a hardware store mention and a flea market recommendation, it's a quick survival guide of where to get everything from a hammer and a bucket of paint for fix-ups to a bouquet of lilies and a quick gift for a housewarming. We're deeming this one bookmark-worthy, since you never know the next time you'll be stuck at 90th street and need somewhere fun for tourists where you can also grab fries. [Apartment Therapy]
