Gil Shaham is one of the best violinists in the world. His rendition of Bach was extraordinary. I found that the video presentation that was shown on the screen behind him a distraction. Far from adding anything to the performance, it was a source of annoyance. The pictures had nothing to do with the music and were mostly ugly to... More

I had a great experience at 92nd Street Y when I had the pleasure of attending the event 'Richard Lewis in conversation with JB Smoove' back in May. The venue was intimate and the atmosphere relaxed. Coming from the UK and being a big fan of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' it was a great experience to see these two comedians in... More

Was just at a lecture by Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks about his book "Not in God's Name". He is a brilliant and engaging speaker and it was an amazing talk. After his lecture, he had a sit-down with Eliza Griswold (a journalist) and then took questions from the audience. This is just one of many brilliant and entertaining speakers that... More

This is the first time I've been to this venue. It's beautiful, holds about 850 people, and the seats are comfortable. I sat in the balcony and was able to see Joan Osborne and Mavis Staples from my seat. They were great by the way.

The Emilio and Gloria Estefan Q&A lead by the fab Rita Moreno was purely amazing! It was great to see them all interact with each other and learning more about how their career's started was nice. Thumbs up to the 92nd Street Y for this one.

The 92nd Street Jewish Y is an historic Manhattan institution. It hosts a series of lectures, concerts, dances, talks, classes, and workouts in a large building on East 92nd Street. These events can range from hyper intellectual talks by world luminaries including Nobel Prize winners, to popular and classical music concerts, and foodie demonstrations among many others. We attended a... More

I have seen Elie Weisel at the 92nd street Y three times It was an incredible experience. One I shall not forget. The Y offers a culturally rich experience, a variety of topics, and always with cutting edge speakers and artists. Well done. Kudos to an excellent establisment.

I've enjoyed concerts and readings, classes and art workshops at this center, and I have always felt welcomed and treated with grace. It is not afraid of having cutting edge thinkers and intellectual dialogue. The catalogue is a thick compendium of the best of NYC. I want to try some of their tours and trips! They even have a strong... More

My husband and I are fans of the humorist Andy Borowitz, of the New Yorker, who has an international blog and Facebook. His biting and insightful humor on current politics and culture always has been painfully true and hilarious at the same time. He predates John Stewart, but has been content to wield his pen and words. But in person,... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
