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!
