Lincoln Center is something to see! We saw a matinee 'just for fun' and stayed for the first 2 acts. They are talented performers but the performance wasn't quite what we expected. Perhaps and actual show might have been better than the 'just for fun'...More

city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

I would agree with BartokBela. Buy direct from the NYCB box office. We went to Nutcracker last year & got great seats without broker fees or mark-ups.
