Was there to look at the various buildings and was impressed but would be much nicer if the visit can be done at night. The buildings uses alot of sand stones.

If you like opera, then a tour through the Lincoln Center is a must. Can be tricky to find the place to get the tickets, but ask. Most people are helpful!

Perhaps the largest opera house in the world with classic productions. Extraordinary sets and chorus and, of course, the worlds greatest opera stars. If you think it's easy to hit these notes, just try!

I saw a ballet, All Robbins, last month at this theater in Lincoln Center, NYC. The theater is gorgeous when you walk in through the doors and sit down. The ceiling is lighted with a giant chandelier. There are lights along the boxes that sparkle....More

Wasn't there for any plays or shows. Just wanted to have a look at the buildings and the fountain which was found in the center. The entire area was beautiful, especially at night.

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

Hi, could you please tell me where to buy tickets to Metropolitan Opera? We'll be in NY in September (flying in from Canada), and all the websites I have found are just re-sellers with ridiculous prices (not even for tickets but their service fees), and tickets are not delivered to you right away. Official website suggests I can order tickets by actual mail (=post), which sounds strange to me in 21st century, and I won't know the seats that will be chosen for me). Thanks, Corinne

I'm not sure, but there were some at the Met, but very pricey.
