Lincoln Square is a bustling, vibrant part of New York City that combines a thriving commercial and retail presence, world-renowned cultural institutions and entertainment facilities, and a large residential community all in one neighborhood. Anchored by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and the magnificent Time Warner Center, this fashionable, cosmopolitan Upper West Side neighborhood features an abundance of fine restaurants, cafes, cultural institutions, specialty stores and large retailers, state of the art health care facilities, educational institutions, and more.
The neighborhood is also home to wonderful public spaces and vibrant green places. Central Park borders the eastern boundary of our BID; the fountain at Columbus Circle serves as a scenic meeting spot for friends; and concertgoers, students and pedestrians can soak up Lincoln Square’s creative energy from the elevated steps in front of Lincoln Center’s newly designed Alice Tully Hall. Both Dante Park (Broadway & 63rd Street) and Richard Tucker Park (Broadway between 65th and 66th) offer shady havens perfect for people-watching, while the latter is also home to the BID’s free summer concert series and a bountiful Greenmarket each Thursday and Saturday.
