About Lincoln Center
Lincoln Center, also known as Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, is a building complex located in the Lincoln Square neighborhood on Manhattan’s Upper West Side in New York City. It is the hub for performing arts in New York City. It houses 11 internationally renowned arts institutions: School of American Ballet, New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Center Theatre, New York Philharmonic, New York City Ballet, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Metropolitan Opera and the Juilliard School.
The venue was built between 1955-1969 by a association of civic leaders, under the leadership of John D Rockefeller III, as part of the “Lincoln Square Renewal Project”. It has 30 indoor and outdoor facilities and hosts five million visitors annually. Renowned architects were contracted to designing the major buildings in the location. Over the course of 30 years, the initially diverse working class area around Lincoln Center was substituted with a collection of high culture to please the association.
