What to Know Before Moving to Lincoln Square
Interested in learning more about this small but prized neighborhood? Here are some things you should know before your move.
Types of Buildings
For such a condensed neighborhood, cosmopolitan and tony Lincoln Square offers a wealth of extraordinary residential buildings. Buildings contrast in age and design, from sleek luxury high-rises to boutique pre-war co-ops. For example, Dorchester Towers is a 33-floor, 680 condo building built in 1964 with amenities that include a 24-hour doorman, gym, landscaped roof deck, bike and storage rooms, live-in resident superintendent, and fantastic Central Park views. The 30-floor Grand Tier was built in 2002 and has 229 luxury apartments that overlook Lincoln Center on one side and Central Park on the other. The building offers a 24-hour doorman and concierge, gym, indoor pool, landscaped terrace, storage, attended garage with electric charging station, and water filtration throughout. In contrast, the only amenities in a 13-story building on W 72nd Street, built in 1905, are an elevator, bike room, and live-in super.
Lincoln Square Neighborhood Amenities
Lincoln Square is the cultural and artistic heart of Manhattan and provides residents with an astonishing array of world-class entertainment. But locals also enjoy the upscale restaurants and bars, cafes and cocktail lounges, and high-end shopping. Procuring everyday necessities is easy too. When it’s time for a nature fix, greenspace is practically outside the door. The neighborhood is bookended by Central Park on the east and Riverside Park South on the west. Both parks offer extraordinary urban greenspace but very different amenities. Riverside Park South was built on the New York Central Railroad yard site and retains an industrial flavor. Native ecosystems flow among historic structures that were kept to honor the area’s role in the history of the NYC railroad. Active and passive recreation options include dog-friendly play areas, children’s playgrounds, and soccer fields. The park is located along the NYC Water Trail which is linked to the Hudson River Greenway – the most heavily used bikeway in the country.
Public Transit and Walk Scores
Positioned right next to Lincoln Center, the 66th Street-Lincoln Center station is conveniently located for commutes and sojourns around the city. Lincoln Square is served by trains 1 and 2. Whether you’re running errands or heading out for a night at Lincoln Center, walking this compact neighborhood is super-easy. Any one of the numbered streets will take you east to Central Park or west to the Hudson River – in a short walk. These are some of the reasons why Lincoln Square has earned a transit score of 100 and a walking score of 98!Get Pricing
