Short opinion piece in the New York Times lamenting the loss of H & H, claiming “the neighborhood is finished.”

The neighborhood may have lost some character in recent years, and there are way too many banks and pharmacies, but reports of the death of the Upper West Side are greatly exaggerated.

I’m sure a generation of Upper West Siders who are currently new to the area or born recently will claim the sky is falling when Insomnia Cookies inevitably goes out of business in 30 years, replaced by some generic hover-board repair shop.
