Friends and I attended Tom Kenyon's Sound Immersion Intensive at Symphony Space, and the experience was amazing. The experience of hearing Kenyon's four-octave voice in this theater built for symphonies was one we will not forget.

Located uptown and away from the hustle of md-town, this theater books an eclectic mixture of shows and performances. It's not a huge place and so the charm. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. A book sale was being held in the lobby when...More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
