They have great programming at Symphony Space and it's easy to get to on the 2 or 3 train. The seats are comfortable and I don't think there is a bad one in the house.

Friends and I attended Tom Kenyon's Sound Immersion Intensive at Symphony Space, and the experience was amazing. The experience of hearing Kenyon's four-octave voice in this theater built for symphonies was one we will not forget.

I love that this theater is not part of the mainstream theater district since it is on Broadway and 95th. The programming is also not mainstream. I have attended 2 events there and enjoyed them both. Be sure to pick up their annual calendar to...More

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,
