I'm still impressed with the tremendous art space new yorkers have. We always listen about Julliard and Metropolitan Opera. They have this and much more IN A SINGLE SPACE. Incredibly large spaces for a city that expensive, they saved room for boulevards, water mirrors. The restaurant in the middle of all this has a green roof, covered with grass in... More

Even if you're not here to see a show of some sort it's a great spot for people watching. Head over in the early evening so you can see the grounds, and fountain, at dusk and into night time. As night falls the fountain is fully lit and puts on a great show.

One cannot go to New York without going to the Lincoln Center . This is the center of culture and performing arts in the whole United States, and its performances are of international quality, not comparable to any other city in the americas.

Every year when we travel to NY, we make a stop at the Lincoln Centre Box Office one of our first things to do. There are always tickets to performances (both free and with fee) - and I cannot recommend securing tickets to a show at Alice Tully or Avery Fisher Hall. From young Julliard students to the NY Philharmonic... More

No matter what you see, this is an extraordinary venue. This six acre facility has thirty indoor and outdoor performance spaces. Check out the costume displays at the Koch theater.

We love this place primarily for the talents and performances it hosts. The starburst chandeliers are beautiful. The interior decor is odd -- we don't know what that antler-like object is above the stage -- but the exterior spaces are open and inviting.
