West Side Story: The Evolution of Lincoln Center

Meet at the fountain in the plaza of Lincoln Center.

Discover the evolution of this pioneering cultural complex of the mid-20th Century. Explore its origins as a Robert Moses urban renewal project announced in 1956, through its design and construction by some of our most iconic Modern architects in the turbulent 60s, to its reimagining by Diller, Scofidio and Renfro in this past decade for the New York of the 21st Century.

Tours will run rain or shine. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to tour start time. Registration is limited to 20; walk-ups are not guaranteed a spot on the tour. Some tours utilize VOX amplification systems; attendees are welcome to bring their personal earbuds.
