the range of films, theatrical performances and interesting lectures is vast and fascinating. We were entranced recently by a concert by the 92Y School of Music Orchestra. There are many offerings at this iconic institution; the walking tours of NYC are particularly good, and very...More

Nothing rivals the 92nd street Y for culture, music the arts and plain fun. Coming here for a concert and lecture is a fun way to spend a late summer day on a Sunday. I highly recommend for tourists and locals alike.

This excellent panel discussion introduced us to 92Y programs. It exceeded our expectations. All panel members were articulate, astute & passionate about their " entrepreneur ship". We subsequently signed up for two more programs.

Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
