Lincoln Square is exploding with great culture, including all the events Lincoln Center has to offer—the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Ballet—to the neighborhood’s two great movie theaters, the AMC Lincoln Square, with its 13 screens showing the best of Hollywood and the Lincoln Plaza Cinema, which specializes in indie and foreign films. The neighborhood is loaded with first-rate shopping and dining options, for all tastes and budgets. The Shops at Columbus Circle offer higher-end retail while corridors like Broadway and Columbus Avenue provide for a range for any wallet. Restaurants like Jean Georges, Picholine and The Leopard at Des Artistes offer fine dining. Central Park is a few blocks away, as are the playing fields and bike/running paths of Riverside Park.
