One of the best places in NYC to see a show. Amazing acoustics and beautifully redone. Used to come see the Allman Brothers many times during each of the March runs.

E.I. came on to the checker board stage and began. The sound was tinny. But, more importantly, Mr. Izzard was off. At least on the first night. I know his... More

Went to see Jerry Seinfeld's homestand at the beacon. Was really impressed with the insides of the theater. The sides are covered with an amazing mural and the decor, all around, was stunning. The bar was impressively stocked, also

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.
