I like the venue. Too bad it requires getting through security with a worse attitude than TSA. Every day I go in I am stopped and searched. I walked directly outside for less than 5 minutes did not walk anywhere else and when I returned I was literally chased through the lobby by 4! Security guards because I was wearing... More

I can never say enough about the treasures available at this venue. I attended Opening Night in October 2015, George Gershwin's Rhapsody In Blue performed in its original jazz form by pianist Ted Rosenthal. As his fingers struck the last keys, he vaulted off his bench just as the audience rose on their feet with absolute abandon! Also on hand,... More

The lovely hall here is really a delight to hear any type of string quartet, small orchestral grouping or noted speakers. The sight lines are excellent but DO NOT sit upstairs as the seats are very uncomfortable and small. The auditorium slopes down so that no one blocks you in front and are spacious enough for all but the largest... More

This excellent panel discussion introduced us to 92Y programs. It exceeded our expectations. All panel members were articulate, astute & passionate about their " entrepreneur ship". We subsequently signed up for two more programs.

The 92Y Harkness Dance Center offers an array of performances, classes, workshops and intensives. It is one of the premier presenting organizations in NYC due to its breadth and depth of dance/movement categories and techniques.

We visited for a very busy event. Kirsten Gillibrand interviewed Cory Booker. Even though there were loads of people there, the staff handled the crowds very well. The seats are bit tight, as most old theaters are, but it was a good experience.

Gil Shaham is one of the best violinists in the world. His rendition of Bach was extraordinary. I found that the video presentation that was shown on the screen behind him a distraction. Far from adding anything to the performance, it was a source of annoyance. The pictures had nothing to do with the music and were mostly ugly to... More

I had a great experience at 92nd Street Y when I had the pleasure of attending the event 'Richard Lewis in conversation with JB Smoove' back in May. The venue was intimate and the atmosphere relaxed. Coming from the UK and being a big fan of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' it was a great experience to see these two comedians in... More

Was just at a lecture by Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks about his book "Not in God's Name". He is a brilliant and engaging speaker and it was an amazing talk. After his lecture, he had a sit-down with Eliza Griswold (a journalist) and then took questions from the audience. This is just one of many brilliant and entertaining speakers that... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
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.
