"Staid but solid standby"

While the bright young things of the New York City theatre and music scene may be heading to the latest installation-art-rave-warehouse-glitter-party in the remote regions of Brooklyn, New York's classical vanguard remains steadfastly put, heading to the various highbrow cultural delights of Lincoln Center. And boy, are there delights in store! From the arty films and rereleases on offer at the Walter Reade Theatre (and new arthouse release across the street at Lincoln Square Cinemas) to the Philharmonic, ballet theatre, and nearby Time Warner jazz centre, this area offers up some of the best culture in the city on a regular basis. The crowd tends to skew older than in Williamsburg, but the pleasures are accessible to all ages. Regular events like summer dance outing Midsummer NIghts' Swing draw a range of residents. Best of all, Lincoln Center is not only easily accessible from all of Manhattan, but is also highly conveniently located for foodies. Fiorello's, one of the city's finest Italians (and offering the best flat-bread pizza in the city) is right next door, as is the more low-key Serafina's. Or head to the upscale new restaurants in the Time Warner Centre for an even swanker experience. Lincoln Center has it all!
  • Best culture/nightlife in the city
