Along with visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art and shopping at the city’s iconic department stores, catching an event at Lincoln Center tops the charts as a Manhattan must-do, for temporary tourists and born-and-raised residents alike. Highlighted by the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, and Lincoln Center Theater, eleven organizations provide countless entertainment opportunities across the 29 venues that comprise the Lincoln Center campus.

Arts lovers looking to make the Lincoln Center area their home, are also in luck. As an up-and-coming part of the city, it promises a “neighborhood feel” and spectacular views to full-time New Yorkers or those seeking a pied-à-terre in the middle of the arts action. Sellers agree that, since 2008, the area has blossomed into its own niche, now referred to separately as the Lincoln Center area instead of simply the Upper West Side. Read on for some of the best living spaces this cultural district has to offer.

Tier-iffic Rentals

At 1930 Broadway and 64th Street lies a gem of a building that provides renters craving condo-style luxuries with everything they need. Step into the lobby, which is decked out with vaulted ceilings, marble floors, and rare artworks, and you might think of settling in before even viewing the apartments. Each potential home includes oversized bay or half-bay windows, hardwood floors, a gourmet kitchen, and a variety of layouts to accommodate everyone from a family of four to a singleton.

 

Residents who want something special in terms of fitness should see the pool, exercise center with on-site trainer, and sauna. After a good workout, feel free to lounge on the landscaped roof deck while taking in a breathtaking winter sunset. If you are still considering other options, Nancy Albertson of Glenwood, the company managing the Grand Tier, touches on the building’s best quality. “You’re one block from Central Park, have easy access to the waterfront, and are just steps away from some of the best dining, high-end shopping, gourmet food, and more-not to mention the culture and entertainment offered at Lincoln Center,” says Albertson. “You have a front-row seat to this institution known internationally for the ballet, opera, the recent addition of Fashion Week, and regular events in the plaza such as the tree lighting, dance performances, and intimate concerts.”
