The 12 world-renowned independent resident companies that make up the Lincoln Center represent the very best in the performing arts today. This site guides you through the superb offerings of the resident companies as well as the excellent programs of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc., titled “Lincoln Center Presents.”3. Times Square | Broadway & 7th Avenue / 42nd-47th Street – New York, NY 10036The Times Square Alliance was founded in 1992 with a focus to improve and promote NYC’s Times Square – cultivating the creativity, energy and edge that have made this area of New York City an icon of Entertainment, Culture and Urban Life of Manhattan for over a century. Time Square is alive with lights, people, New York City Restaurants, huge billboards for Music Artists, Entertainers, Manhattan Stores, NYC Attractions and Broadway Shows.4. Empire State Building | 350 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10001The Empire State Building is a 102-story Art Deco skyscraper in New York City. Its name is derived from the nickname for the state of New York. It stood as the world’s tallest building for more than forty years, from its completion in 1931 until the construction of the World Trade Center North Tower in 1972, and is now once again the tallest building in New York after the destruction of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. 5. NY Vietnam Veterans Memorial | 55 Water Street, New York, NY 10004The excerpts etched into the New York Vietnam Veterans Memorial were chosen from letters, diary entries, and poems written by Americans during the Vietnam Era, which were submitted to the New York Vietnam Veterans Memorial Commission. These quotes are supplemented by news dispatches and public statements about the war. It is fitting that the Memorial is located one block east of Fraunces Tavern, where George Washington bade farewell to his officers at the end of the Revolutionary War. Come and enjoy this moving and deserving monument.6. Madison Square Garden | 4 Pennsylvania Plaza, New York, NY 10018Madison Square Garden, often abbreviated as MSG, known colloquially simply as The Garden. It is also the name of the entity which owns the arena and several of the professional sports franchises which play there. There have been four incarnations of the arena. The first two were located at Madison Square, thus the name. Subsequently a new 17,000-seat Garden (opened December 15, 1925) was built at 50th Street and 8th Avenue, and the current Garden (opened February 14, 1968) is at 7th Avenue between 31st and 33rd Streets, situated on top of Pennsylvania Station. The present arena is informally known to some by the advertising slogan “The World’s Most Famous Arena”.7. Flat Iron Building | 175 Fifth Avenue at 23rd Street, New York, NY 10016The Fuller Building or as it is better known, the Flatiron Building, is located in the borough of Manhattan, and was one of the tallest buildings in New York City upon its completion in 1902. The building was designed by Chicago’s Daniel Burnham with John Wellborn Root in the Beaux-Arts style on a triangular island block at 23rd Street, Fifth Avenue, and Broadway, facing Madison Square.8. Battery Park | Battery Park (South of Broadway), New York, NY 10004 The Battery is one of New York City’s oldest public open spaces. Dutch settlers landed here in 1623 and established New Amsterdam. Now The Battery is truly the cradle of New York history, the front lawn of the Downtown district, and a hub of harbor access and cultural tourism. Over four million people, including residents, office workers, school groups, and tourists from around the world annually visit the park and its major landmark, Castle Clinton National Monument. 9. Union Square Park | Between 14th and 18th Streets, New York, NY 10011Union Square (also known as Union Square Park) is an important and historic intersection in New York City, located where Broadway and the Bowery came together in the early 19th century. Today it is bounded by 14th Street, Union Square East, 17th Street, and Union Square West. It is run and operated jointly by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation as well as the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.10. Metropolitan Museum of Art | 1000 Fifth Ave, New York, NY 10028Home of blockbuster after blockbuster, the Metropolitan Museum of Art attracts some five million people a year, more than any other spot in New York City. And it’s no wonder — this place is magnificent. At 1.6 million square feet, this is the largest museum in the Western Hemisphere. Nearly all the world’s cultures are on display through the ages — from Egyptian mummies to ancient Greek statuary to Islamic carvings to Renaissance paintings to Native American masks to 20th-century decorative arts — and masterpieces are the rule. You could go once a week for a lifetime and still find something new on each visit.11. Apollo Theater | 253 West 125th Street, 7th and 8th Ave, New York, NY 10027Yesterday…A place where thousands of young artists have stepped out into the spotlight and launched their careers. A place “where stars are born and legends are made.” The legendary Apollo Theater is so much more than an historic landmark – it is a source of pride and a symbol of the brilliance of American artistic achievement. From 1934 when the Apollo first introduced its world-famous Amateur Night which launched the careers of legendary artists like Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown, Michael Jackson, D’Angelo and Lauryn Hill, the Apollo has maintained its position as the nation’s most popular arena for emerging and established black and Latino performers.12. ChinatownWith one of the densest populations of Chinese immigrants in the Western Hemisphere, Manhattan’s Chinatown is a true New York story, the American dream in action. The thriving immigrant population gives visitors access to the most far-flung wares and culinary delights, and to walk these streets is to walk through history (it’s where much of the action in Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York took place). A great starting point is Chatham Square, which lies at the intersection of seven major streets (including Bowery and Mott Street)–a metaphor, perhaps, for the neighborhood’s confluence of cultures.
