Quick Profile

Centered, in name and location, around the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Square’s history is heavily steeped in strong African American and Afro-Caribbean roots. Iconic jazz pianist, Thelonious Monk, is counted among its many former artistic and professional denizens.

The neighborhood is beloved for its amazing shopping, its distinguished art scene, and phenomenal restaurants--and don’t forget Central Park. From Lincoln Square, one is at the gateway to virtually everything New York City has to offer, either in your backyard or via excellent subway access.

With its beautiful pre-war architecture surrounded by some of NYC’s premier skyscrapers, Lincoln Square has become a safe, much sought after neighborhood. If you like living in the action, there are few places in the world that can rival Lincoln Square.
