The David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center officially opens to the public on December 17th. The new space, open every day and located on Broadway between 62nd and 63rd streets, is a vibrant, new public visitors space and ticketing facility that is home to an array of programs, services, and amenities designed to welcome, inform, and entertain the thousands of people who visit Lincoln Center and its surrounding community every day.
Formerly known as the Harmony Atrium when the space originally opened in 1979, it was one of approximately 503 Privately Owned Public Spaces (POPS) in New York City created under a longstanding program that offers zoning concessions to office and residential developers in return for accessible public spaces. Newly reinvigorated, this public space for the arts offers services including:
• A community gathering place to linger in and enjoy
• Free weekly performances
• Chef Tom Colicchio's 'wichcraft café
• The starting point for guided tours of the Lincoln Center campus
• A staffed Information Desk
• Free Wi-Fi access
For the first time in Lincoln Center's 50-year history, day-of discount tickets to available performances across the campus will be sold in the Atrium starting on January 7th. To kick off the discount ticket sales, Lincoln Center will offer "$20 Tickets for 20 Days" -- all tickets at the day-of discount ticket box office will be sold for the promotional price of $20, inclusive, through January 26th. Tickets will go on sale at 12 noon every day and will be sold, two per person, on a first-come, first-served basis. The Box Office is closed on Monday, so those tickets will be sold on Sunday.**
"$20 for 20 Days" is made possible by a generous gift from David M. Rubenstein.
**Tickets for "$20 for 20 Days" will only be available for that night's performances at Lincoln Center and will only be available at the Donald and Barbara Zucker Box Office at the Rubenstein Atrium. Inventory will change daily based on availability, and availability cannot be guaranteed.
The $20 for 20 Days runs January 7-27. The TKTS Booth is ongoing.
