Neighborhood Overview

Get to know Lincoln Square

Anchored by the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, a 16-acre cultural hub that includes The Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Ballet, and The Julliard School, Lincoln Square is a mecca for artists, young professionals, and families. Columbus Circle is the gateway to the neighborhood, which stretches from Central Park to the Hudson River between 59th and 72nd Streets; it’s a fitting preview, with a museum, world-class dining, and tony shops, conveniently set around a commuter hub. Prewar co-ops frame Central Park, town homes line many streets, and new developments continue along Riverside Drive. Summer brings concerts in the park and Midsummer Night Swing, an outdoor dance party at Lincoln Center.
