"Lincoln Center: Beautiful Place with Tons of Art/Culture"

If you are lucky to get to New York and love music, Lincoln Square is definitely the place to visit, and if you are fortunate enough, live in. Beautiful condos and hi-rises line the river on the West Side, all within walking distance of The Metropolitan Opera House, Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center Theater and NYC Ballet. In the summer there is a lot of activity at Lincoln Center with the MidSummer Night Swing Festival where bands come to play live and everyone is encouraged to dance! You can also look to visit the Red Apple Circus which comes to perform regularly under the Big Top in Damrosch Park (part of the center). Along Broadway, a block or two away, one can find great places to eat when dining out with a loved one or just casual pickings if need be. There are boutiques as well as regular supermarket shopping, and the subway is conveniently nearby. This neighborhood is known for being hip and fashionable. It's kept very clean and the Julliard School (home to many budding musicians) is nearby. One can easily commute to all parts of the city from here, by foot, cab or train. Columbus Circle, which houses a brand new multi-floor mall, is also quite close. Tourists will find this a great place to absorb New York's nightlife and shopping. Residents find this a lovely and convenient place to live.

"Lincoln Square - The Place for the Performing Arts"

You will find Lincoln Square to be in the area of Broadway and Columbus Avenue intersection and in between West 65th and West 66th Streets. When you visit there place, you will notice there is a connection with Lincoln Center and the performing arts, as Lincoln Center is the place where entertainment shines year round.

The area is very busy with tourist and performers walking around. It is not a quiet place. There are horns blowing constantly. And recently Lincoln Center was undergoing renovations, so this has made the place less attractive and hard to walk around in the area.

If you've been to Lincoln Square, you will find that is caters a lot to schools, businesses, and entertainment, for there are several public schools, universities, and many theaters in the vicinity. The bright side of Lincoln Square is its stores. Go to Lincoln Center and you will find a host of stores to satisfy your every need.
  • Plenty of stores

"Filled with stages - a high school drama club's dream"

This area is less like a neighborhood and more like a cluster of buildings that house various artistic performances and schools – Julliard School, Lincoln Center Theatre, New York City Ballet, Film Society of Lincoln Center; the list goes on. This is exactly the type of place that an arts-appreciative tourist would find themselves, whether or not it’s been recommended to them as a must-see or not.
The compilation of facilities here is actually a 16.3 acre collage collectively known as the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. None of these facilities lacks the modern comforts or grand atmosphere that you would expect of such esteemed theatres, but if you had to chose just one to marvel at, I would suggest the Metropolitan Opera House.
