Civic Center is the seat of power for all things
government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz

shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.
