As the Upper West Side has enjoyed its phenomenal rebirth, the whole quarter of the city has become a center of New York City Cultural Events.
The phenomenal changes begin at 59th Street, with Columbus Circle and Time-Warner Center. Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts stuns visitors with its enormity and architecture, the city’s own “rainbow” of every form of the lively arts. American and foreign films are always on view there and across Broadway. Jazz, theatre, libraries, the Beacon Theatre. Bookstore readings, history of the Bible—you’ve walked our boulevard, and it’s all there. The Upper West Side boasts 12 museums, from its northern border within Harlem, to the Museum of Art & Design in Columbus Circle. Of course, the iconic art and history sites are the American Museum of Natural History and the New-York Historic Society, both neighbors to Park 79 Hotel. New York City Cultural Events thrive and grow…our pride!
