Headquartered this year at the David Rubenstein Atrium right in our Upper West Side neighborhood, the 20th New Yorker Festival will fill Lincoln Square with the biggest names in news, politics, books, film, music, art, and popular culture for three days of events--from panels and live performances to intimate discussions and exclusive screenings.

Between Friday, October 11 and Sunday, October 13, choose from a selection of events around the area such as: a screening of the 2019 Grand Jury Prize winner at Sundance "Clemency", a discussion about Brexit, a talk with actress Sarah Paulson and Michael Schulman, a discussion about the classic American comic strip Charlie Brown, and more. Tickets are $49 and up and selling out fast, so visit the website today. Events take place at various venues, including the Rubenstein Atrium, the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, N.Y.I.T. Auditorium on Broadway, and other locations. Click here to view a map of venues

Lincoln Square is the number one place to be for cultural and artistic experiences.
