We went for a classical concert and the seats were comfortable, acoustics fantastic. The staff is very helpful and center very well run. There is a small cafe if you need a quick bite before or after your visit. We stay in midtown at 49th and Lexington and needed to take a cab/F.Y.I.

Wow, what can I say. This venue is great to watch a production such as the King and I. The facilities are well kept and there does not appear to be a bad seat in the house! Our seats were in the second to last row in the orchestra near the sound board and everything was still close by. The... More

First time my Teens have seen the Opera, it was very exciting for them - not only the Opera, but, the buildings and the people.

Step back to 1860 and enjoy one of the most compelling stories on Broadway. Although in the large Lincoln Center theatre, the sliding stage brought the action into the audience for an intimate theater in the round performance. Extraordinary performances by all, including the understudies. This classic Rodgers and Hammerstein holds up to the test of time as the issues... More

This was a delightful tour of public spaces on the campus. The he tour only allows fir viewing of two theatres (depending on what is not performing at the time of your tour) but still informative and interesting.

My wife and I had a few hours before we left, so we decided to take the tour. Very interesting, and well worth it. We were lucky enough to take a brief seat and listen to an orchestra practicing, UNVBELIEVABLE.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
