It is definitely one of those quintessential NYC locales and is nice for at least one visit with those typical photos to show you made the usually tourist rounds.

Although noisy from traffic during the day it has a lovely tree lined seating area from which you can people watch while having your morning coffee or late night drinks.

Lincoln center is a NYC landmark, but you don't have to see a show to enjoy the square. I always stop for awhile and sit in the middle of the square by the fountain whenever I'm passing by.

A wonderful part of New York - the square itself feels like the centre of New York but there is so much to do in the surrounding streets, arts, culture, shopping, restaurants and Central Park.

From Opera to Dance to Theater and Music, Lincoln center has it all. The new renovation of the plaza and adjoining spaces is dynamic - a must for opera lovers, theater lovers and the like. Always something happening!

On November 26th we went to the Tree lighting ceremony at Dante park in Linclon Square. It is a fantastic evening. At the park Suzanne vega sang a few songs and then at 6:50 the show went live on TV.

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.
