Wonderful place to visit. I just went there to see the free Frank Sinatra exhibit which is running until September. It was fantastic! If you are a Sinatra admirer; this is a must see. I can't wait to see it again.

Attended the Swan Lake performance at The Met and it was a very special evening! Dinner at The Grand Tier was excellent, the acoustics were perfection in the auditorium! The performance was magical!

Abundance of culture in one wonderful venue. The Opera, The Philharmonic, The Ballet, The Library and the Theatres; all are here for the education and enjoyment of the Performing Arts; with Julliard right around the corner! This neighborhood offers so many wonderful restaurants to dine in before or after the show, or quiet dining when everyone else is enjoying what's... More

Lincoln Center includes several theaters around a great piazza (the fountain is extraordinary) and a reflecting pond (wonderful sculpture resting in it). The Metropolitan Opera House isn't the most beautiful in the world, but when the performance is just about to begin and the many chandeliers rise, you forget about all that. Sit in a center section unless you want... More

Since we live in a NJ suburb not far from NYC, we've come to performances at Lincoln Center many times over the years. If you're visiting NYC for the first time you should definitely try to see something here, or else just come to walk around the building. It's quite impressive, and at night looks amazing with all the lights.... More

We went to see a performed by the American Children's Choir. Our theater was small enough for the sound to be terrific. The children were wonderful. Such talents. Seat were comfortable. This was a wonderful experience.

I was in New York to attend an ABT performance. To enhance my experience, I decided to take a Lincoln Center tour. What a lovely excursion. Our guide, Stefania, was enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the complex we were being guided through. Having only ever been in the Metropolitan Opera House, it was a treat to enter... More

Perfect place to hear and enjoy classical music, ballet. We love opera so we make it a point to enjoy a performance at the Met (which is one of the Lincoln Center venues) every time we are in NY. Memories are easy to find --- over the years we saw Placido Domingo, Pavarotti, Renee Fleming here, all for the first... More

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.
