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

In addition to the usual Jewish center stuff (nursery school, workout gym, etc.), this place features a wonderful selection of talks, presentations, and smaller group concerts. The auditorium is of moderate size and is classy, if older. We heard the excellent Jerusalem Quartet play its second of three Brahms concerts and the sound was quite wonderful (as was the playing...

Whether it's a conversation with journalists, actors, politicians, humanitarians, economists, musicians in it's acoustically designed auditorium, the 92Y offers wonderful entertainment but mostly thought-provoking conversations. I've attended many events, including jazz in July and preview of The Birdman. The other night I listened to host Thane Rosenbaum talk with WSJ journalist Bret Stephens and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a defender of... More

the smallish auditorium is great for acoustic music venues and for talks. We saw the Milk Carton Kids & Sarah Jarosz Saturday night and were able to secure a great parking spot on Lex and have a great meal nearby. Close to the FDR for a quick escape back home. Loved the acoustics and the easy access

The 92Y is a venue that's a nice change of pace from seeing a show in NYC. It's walkable from the 96th street green line subway stop. Plenty of restaurant choices around to try beforehand. The 92Y has interesting lectures from authors, actors, artists, musicians, politicians, etc. as well as concerts. You don't have to be a member get tickets.... More

92Y is off the well-beaten tourist path, but definitely worth a visit. Host to the Jazz in July Festival, the venue has an ideal concert hall, and plays host to many great artists in a variety of musical genres.

Newyorker Brentano Quartett payed in 92nd St Y two Mozarts quartett. The hall was nearly fullbooked. The atmoshere there is good, the audience quite professional. Tickets are able to book/buy with internet. The hall is easy to find with subway or Manhattan busses.

Staying in Upper East Side

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.
