Welcome, Hawthorn Park, to The Great Neighborhood of Lincoln Square!

Here at Glenwood we just added an exciting new addition to our family of luxury rental buildings: the newly completed 54-story Hawthorn Park, right next to the beautiful Lincoln Center campus. While Lincoln Center remains the neighborhood’s geographic and cultural anchor (especially after the hugely successful redesign finished a few years ago, it’s looking and functioning better than ever), the whole Lincoln Square community has undergone an enormous transformation in the past decade or so, making this part of town both a vibrant destination for a night out as well as a fun, friendly, family-orientated place to live.

Dining Out in Lincoln Square

One aspect of Lincoln Square’s new appeal is the explosion of first-rate restaurants that have opened in the area. Renowned restauranteur Daniel Boluod has taken over much of the block on Broadway right across from Lincoln Center, with:

  • The Mediterranean-influenced Boulud Sud,
  • The meaty Bar Boulud,
  • The casual counter-service spot Epicerie Boulud.

Another newcomer on that block is The Smith, which serves good drinks, a solid menu, and is packed every night with both locals and the pre-/post-performance crowd. Of course, there are some of the best restaurants in New York City–in the world, even–just a few blocks south, including Per Se and Masa at the Time Warner Center, and Jean Georges in the Trump building on Columbus Circle. Also handy for Lincoln Square residents is the huge Whole Foods in the Time Warner Center’s lower level.

Residents Enjoy Shopping, Recreation, and Leisure

Hawthorn Park’s new home is not just about eating and culture. Shopping on Broadway and Columbus Avenue offers residents lots of pretty boutiques, fun shops, and convenient chain stores. For recreation and leisure, some of the nicest parts of Central Park, including Sheep Meadow, the Heckscher Ballfields, Bethesda Fountain and the Mall are all right there. If you head a couple of blocks west instead of east you’re in Riverside Park, which is now part of the westside’s vast, interconnected waterfront of esplanades, bike paths, playgrounds, dog runs, walking piers, and grassy lawns that extends up to the George Washington Bridge and down to Battery Park City. Plus, Lincoln Square is as centrally located as you can get, with easy access to Midtown, the East side, Downtown and up.
