The Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is the largest performing arts center in the world. It is located at 65th Street and Amsterdam Avenue in New York City. The center was named after former President Abraham Lincoln. The center has many venues including the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Philharmonic, the New York City Ballet, the Juilliard School, the School of American Ballet, the New York City Opera, and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Lincoln Center is a stretch of land along the southern edge of Manhattan, just across the street from the Upper West Side. The center is home to many of New York’s most iconic buildings, including the Metropolitan Opera, New York State Theater, Avery Fisher Hall, and David Geffen Hall. Architecture buffs will also want to check out the plaza outside the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center, a beautiful modern glass structure housing the relocated library of the Juilliard School. Lincoln Center's open spaces are also popular spots for the city’s free summer classical music concerts, held every year at the outdoor Marcus Garvey Park, and the famed Mostly Mozart Festival, held in the famed David Geffen Hall.
