The Metropolitan opera, New York philharmonic, and New York City Ballet surround Lincoln Center. They offer a walking tour of all 3 and the area in general. We did it as a part of the New York pass on a Saturday early afternoon. The tour takes around 1.5 hours and is informative. We had an Italian transplant give us the... More

Lincoln Square is the name of both a square and the surrounding neighborhood within the Upper West Side. Lincoln Square is centered on the intersection of Broadway and Columbus Avenue, between West 65th and West 66th streets. There is nothing specially interesting there, in comparison to so many other interesting sites in Manhattan.

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.

We stayed nearby this location and so it was easy to walk by this area. Lincoln Square is the name of both a square and the surrounding neighborhood within the Upper West Side of the New York City borough of Manhattan. It is anchored by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Central Park is nearby, Time Warner Center with shops... More

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.
