Anchored by the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, a 16-acre cultural hub that includes The Metropolitan Opera, the Now York City Ballet, and The Milord 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 and some tall contemporary condos frame Central Park. Townhomes line many streets, and new developments continue along Riverside Drive and West End Avenue. Great subway access to Columbus Circle and proximity to midtown make this a popular neighborhood for those looking to be in the center of it all. Best perk: Lincoln Square offers incredible access to renowned cultural institutions, but also sits close to the green expanses of Central Park and Riverside Park.
