    Here's a real tip... be nimble. Be quick. You gotta be crafty too to make your way around all of the old people at intermission & at the conclusion of any performance there. Wow, there's a lot of 'em.

  • Paul B.

    If you are just going for a tour, or just visiting without going to an event, go AFTER 3PM! If you go too early, the shades are closed. You'll miss the 30' tall paintings by Marc Chagall, a highlight.

    If you're not from New York, bear in mind that New Yorkers arrive at movies 20-30 minutes early to ensure getting a good seat. Arrive on time for a flic in NYC and you'll sit in the front row.

    There's nothing quite like watching the gorgeous Swarovski Crystal chandeliers rise up before the curtain opens in the MET.

    Went to see How to Train Your Dragon 2 here. Expected an IMAX experience but got a small, run down theatre room. It has nothing on the London BFI IMAX.

    This is one of my favorite places in NYC. If you're a culture fan visiting NY: catch a B-way show, hit up MoMA or the Met, and watch something at Lincoln Center. Also, the fountain is spectacular.
