On a winter evening in 1943, in a former Masonic Temple on West 55th Street that had been scheduled for demolition, a concert was held whose reverberations are still being felt 75 years later. That night, New York City Center was born. As the first performing arts center in Manhattan, the fledgling institution broke new ground by presenting dance, music, theater, and opera under the same roof. This multi-use approach to performing arts venues set the mold for the presentation of the arts around the country in the second half of the 20th century. Through constant innovations, City Center continues to be a performing arts leader in the 21st century. For the first time ever, a striking new exhibition will tell the story of “The People’s Theater” through a wide range of material including photographs, costumes, props, theater seats, posters, mosaic tiles, and other ephemera that provide a fresh perspective on City Center’s first 75 years.

Thursday and Saturdays, 8am - 5pm

Greenmarket's gateway to the Upper West Side, the Richard Tucker Park Greenmarket, offers locally grown produce just across the street from Lincoln Center. Seasonal vegetables range from fresh staples like corn and greens to Mexican specialties like papalo and epazote. Orchards boast sweet berries, stone fruit, and over 80 varieties of apples. Knowledgeable growers are at market to explain just how to care for their plants, flowers, and herb pots indoors and out. Impeccable farmstead cheeses, fresh seafood, grass fed beef, duck and duck charcuterie, eggs, artisanal baked goods, and New York’s only producer of both sorghum and maple syrup round out the offerings.

The greenmarket is open every Thursday and Saturday throughout the year.

This night is all about authentic Cuban charanga, with one of New York’s premier Latin dance bands that will keep the dance floor packed all night. Originally founded as Sublime in 1975, the New York–based orchestra was reborn in 2000 as SonSublime thanks to the efforts of bandleader, vocalist, and guiro player Jesse Herrero. Since then, the band has released three albums and lit up dance floors around the world. Opening set by DJ Broadway. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
