Lincoln Square, New York


Lincoln Square, New York

Lincoln Square is the name of both a square and the surrounding neighborhood within the Upper West Side of the New York City borough of Manhattan. Lincoln Square is centered around the intersection of Broadway and Columbus Avenue, between West 65th and West 66th streets. It is anchored by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Tourist information, sidewalk trash removal, and security patrol services are provided by the Lincoln Square BID.West of Columbus Avenue and Broadway, the area shares much of the same gritty past (as depicted in West Side Story) as Hell's Kitchen, to the south. The development of Lincoln Center, and more recently Trump Place and other upscale high-rise apartment buildings have brought a measure of gentrification to the western end of Lincoln Square.
