Lost in Lincoln Square?

Jun 27, 2018
Spending some time around the neighborhood and not sure where to go or what to see? Why not stop by one of our Neighborhood Information Carts and speak to an Information Ambassador (pictured above touring the neighborhood during orientation) this summer! Each summer season (thanks in part to funding from Council Member Rosenthal) we staff our three Information Carts, located at Columbus Circle, Dante Park and Richard Tucker Park, with a number of college and high-school aged students, many of whom return year after year and started when they were students at the local Manhattan/Hunter Science High School. Our friendly Ambassadors are on hand to provide directions, information and answer any other questions you have about places to go and things to do in Lincoln Square and all of New York City. Our Ambassadors can help you with NYC subways and buses, pass out local museum pamphlets, clue you in on summer programming around the area, and more!
 
Starting today, June 27, our Information Ambassadors will be out at the carts from Wednesday through Sunday for the next eight weeks. The Lincoln Square BID is very excited to have friendly Ambassadors assisting the thousands of visitors that come to our district. So stop by and say hello while you travel through the neighborhood--you might learn something new! 
 
Also, on Fridays between 12:00pm and 6:00pm, our Information Ambassadors at Richard Tucker Park staff "Fun Fridays". During this time anyone can enjoy free games including checkers, chess, jenga, and life-sized Connect 4 in the park. Plus, this year we've added a life-size jenga game to our roster, too!
 
If you don't have a chance to speak with our Ambassadors in person, be sure to check out our online events calendar which is full of things to do in Lincoln Square.
