Plan Your Visit

Before your show, make the most of your visit this summer by checking out The Oasis at Josie Robertson Plaza from June 1–August 14, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts' Outdoor Reading Room, or the serene Paul Milstein Reflecting Pool. For all questions related to Summer for the City, staff at The Welcome Center tent (located at the northeast corner of Josie Robertson Plaza) would be happy to help—open Monday–Saturday 10:00 am–6:00 pm and Sunday noon–6:00 pm beginning June 1; and remaining open 30 minutes after a show begins.


Lincoln Center’s approach to accessibility mirrors our commitment to transform performing arts spaces to be more inclusive of our audiences’ identities and access needs by design, not as an afterthought or add-on.
