The Lincoln Center complex stretches from 62nd to 65th Streets, between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues.
The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts has housed productions too numerous to mention. Home to a Broadway theater, Off-Broadway theater, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Opera, the New York City Ballet, and the New York Philharmonic, Lincoln Center is the epicenter of NYC cultural life and has hosted some of the greatest artists and finest performances in the world.
First developed in the 1950s, Lincoln Center gradually become New York City's most impressive cultural destination as new theaters, schools, and cultural institutions began to open in the complex. Handsome theaters and performance spaces like Avery Fisher Hall, New York State Theater, and the Metropolitan Opera House are part of Lincoln Center, as are educational institutions Fordham University and the Juilliard School. Lincoln Center even has its own Broadway theater, the Vivian Beaumont Theater, and Off-Broadway theater, the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. Other highlights of Lincoln Center include the New York Library of Performing Arts, the Walter Reade movie theater, and Damrosch Park, the outdoor performance area where the Big Apple Circus pitches its tent each year.
The massive Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts complex covers several blocks. The main entrance is a beautiful sight, featuring the gorgeous Metropolitan Opera House's distinctive arches and Chagall murals in the background, and Lincoln Center's famous fountain in the foreground. Every theater in the complex has its own special charm, and many of them are breathtakingly beautiful inside. The complex does have a reputation for being rather forbidding and almost fortress-like on the outside, which led to the "transformation" effort that is opening up Lincoln Center structurally so that it is better integrated with its Upper West Side neighborhood.
By subway, take the 1 to the 66th Street/Lincoln Center stop.
