the acoustics are terrible... the NY Philharmonic sounded like playing in a vacuum. Carnigie Hall or the Kimmel Center are much better!

We came to this beautiful place for my son's Gallatin school of NYU graduation. It's a great venue at a fantastic NY location. Music here should be outstanding.

downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
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,
