Lincoln Center is New York City’s main performing arts center. Most of it is on Broadway between 62nd & 66th St. Just tell your driver, “Lincoln Center.” They know.
The main campus houses the NYC Ballet, Metropolitan Opera, NY Philharmonic, Lincoln Center Theater, Film at Lincoln Center, the NY Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Damrosch Park bandshell.
The David Rubenstein Atrium is across Broadway to the east.
The Juilliard School, School of American Ballet, and Chamber Music Society are across 65th St to the north.
Jazz at Lincoln Center is just down Broadway in Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle.
