From a night at the opera to an evening with the Philharmonic, from remarkable Broadway plays and musicals to outdoor dancing in the summer months, from the Big Apple Circus to the two best ballet companies in America--Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is one of the premiere cultural venues in the world. It's a New York treasure!

Fantastic night of jazz at "Jazz at the Lincoln". The 83 year old saxophonist was only fabulous. We met the recently retired Lead Violinist form The Met - and his wife - a charming couple.

Get a ticket to an event here, either an opera, the ballet, the philharmonic, and enjoy being in one of the world's premier performing arts centers. Enjoy dining either at Lincoln or at one of the more informal eateries on its grounds. Soak it up, take it all in.

Pretty interesting exhibit. Lots of interactive areas to listen of watch him in action along with some of his artwork, some lithographs of him and the brat pack as well as his first violin. Yes, he was a violinist. Much appreciate of his talents and his work.

We went to see a ballet in the afternoon. The list of shows and concerts is always attractive. The artists are really professional. The building is large and the Chagall murals beautiful. The shop has interesting products. The location is very easily accessible.

Friend and I attended screening of the 3 LOTR films, with live orchestra and choruses, at David Koch Theatre. Excellent acoustics and sight lines.

We were part of a high school chorus trip which toured the Lincoln Center. It is an amazing place, but we were somewhat disappointed in the fact that so much of it was off limits to our tour.

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.
