Manhattan – Upper West Side
West 62nd Street bet. Columbus and Amsterdam Aves.
Manhattan, NY 10023
Damrosch Park, located in the southwest corner of Lincoln Center Plaza, is a relaxing open space just north of Columbus Circle’s hustle and bustle. Lined with trees (though, technically, most of the "park" is really a concrete plaza) and equipped with a band shell for concerts, Damrosch hosts art fairs, free summertime shows and other gatherings. And starting in 2010, New York Fashion Week events will be held here instead of at Bryant Park. Stop by with takeout lunch or grab a drink from one of the park's walk-up bars (usually open during events held in the summertime).
