Love this facility if I sit downstairs in the orchestra. Ideal for small quartets trios and cozy talks and lectures. The auditorium is a delight with its dedications to some of the masters if music. A separate room is available for refreshments and interviews. Easy to get to and surrounding need by a myriad of. Restaurants nearby for pre or... More

Almost every day there are first class entertainers, polititians, authors, musicians, TV stars, and more who appear in this great auditorium. It is worth going on line to look at the amazing personalities you'll encounter and the prices are very low relative to other NYC venues. I recently saw the great author, Paul Auster, being interviewed and I was prompted... More

A packed house appreciated the remarks of Bernard Henri-Levi while seeing Charlie Rose's lack of depth of knowledge in the evening's topic, The Genius of Judaism, the title of Henri-Levi's new book.

Nothing rivals the 92nd street Y for culture, music the arts and plain fun. Coming here for a concert and lecture is a fun way to spend a late summer day on a Sunday. I highly recommend for tourists and locals alike.

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.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods 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 neighbourhood, 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.
