The streets of Lincoln Square are hallowed. Pretty much any big name in the world of arts has made their first steps on these streets. This NYC neighborhood’s streets are bustling, nightly, as the area attracts art and music lovers from every walk of life. Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is one of the main destinations. For years, the Lincoln Square was considered the least attractive part of the city before John D. Rockefeller III came along and jumpstarted the “Lincoln Square Renewal Project” that included the construction of the arts center in 1950s. Today, the neighborhood consists of mid-rise residential buildings that complement the many refurbished low-rise tenement buildings. Lincoln Square starts at the intersection of Broadway and Columbus Avenue and stretches in-between West 65th and 66th Streets. The purists would have the boundaries go from Columbus Avenue to the east to the Amsterdam Avenue to the west; and from West 72nd Street to the north to West 59th Street to the south.
