When I lived on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Lincoln Center was something that I regularly walked through or visited. But after moving 50 blocks south, I stopped going and wrote it off as simply being too far out of the way. With an uptown meeting on my calendar this week, I used it as an excuse to pay this place a visit again and quickly remembered why I love it so much. In my opinion, it possesses a serenity so unique to New York City. Between the dancing fountain and illumination lawn, people watching from the Urban Grove, enjoying a slew of incredible performances, or simply going to dinner and a movie at the Film Society, Lincoln Center is something that I have promised myself to stop overlooking because of proximity.
