I've seen a few shows at Lincoln Center. Most recently was Joe Biden's book tour where he was interviewed by Stephen Colbert. The hall is lovely, but very large. If getting rear orchestra you're fairly far from the stage. They had security well organized. Oddly,...More

The design of the centre is very interesting. The fountain in the centre of the complex alone appears to have a fun club with a number of us appearing transfixed by the choreography of the water jets putting on their own show. We enjoyed visiting...More

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,
