Beautiful theater but definitely well outside what you think of as Broadway. Subway is very convenient but might seem a little sketchy after an evening performance. If you plan to eat in the area prior to a show, reservations are needed as wait times can...More

We went to an open rehearsal of the New York Philharmonic which was interesting and not quite like a real performance as the conductor kept stopping. Certainly worthwhile as it was free. On another day we went on a tour of the centre concentrating on...More

New York City Ballet is an experience not to be missed when you visit NYC. Generally speaking you want to pick performances where most of the dances are choreographed by George Balanchine. Great performances first. September 25th - Jewels Just wonderful. Teresa Reichlen paired with...More

Even as a native New Yorker, I cannot help but be impressed by the architecture and acoustics of this vast theater. Sight lines are great, sound is clear and my only peeve would be that the seating could be a little snug for bigger people....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,

Thanks, Ian. Yes, maybe this is the best way to check if I can find available seats. I hope I can buy when I get to NY to save some money. Dolar is really expensive to brazilians. Haha
