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.

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.
