The West Side Highway travels along the western side of Manhattan, along the Hudson River. Its nearly 6 miles of roadway starts at the very south of Manhattan and travels north past the West Village, Meatpacking District, and Midtown West to 72nd Street. From there, the roadway becomes the Henry Hudson Parkway, although most people refer to the entire roadway as the West Side Highway. It ends at the very tip of Manhattan at the toll for the Henry Hudson Bridge connecting Manhattan to the Bronx.

TRAFFIC ADVISORIES AND UPDATES
Northbound Exit at 72nd Street — closed on July 8, 2007 to allow construction for Donald Trump’s residential buildings to extend Riverside Boulevard between West 71st and West 72nd Streets. The new roadway provides an additional north-south corridor, serving a new residential development, and will allow north-bound traffic on Riverside Boulevard to access the Henry Hudson Parkway at 72nd Street.
