Lincoln Square is Prepared for Winter
The first real snowfall of 2016 may come this weekend. But, no matter what the forecast is or how much snow blankets our neighborhood, our Clean Team will be ready. In the event of winter weather, our hardworking crews shovel crosswalks, pedestrian crossings in the Broadway Malls, bus stops, catch basins and fire hydrants. However, keeping Lincoln Square accessible is a team effort. We ask that our property owners and businesses do their part to keep the sidewalks in front of their properties and establishments clear of snow as the law requires.

To stay up-to-date on severe weather effecting New York City, visit or to see the City's response. To report a non-emergency snow condition, call 311 or contact 911 for emergencies. If you have any questions about the Lincoln Square BID's response to winter weather, please call our office at 212.581.3774 or email us at
Low Cost Winter Programs at Lincoln Center
Don't let the winter weather give you cabin fever. Even though the mercury is dropping, there is still plenty to do in Lincoln Square. And, since our neighborhood is home to Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and its constituent organizations, there are many events that are available at little or no cost. 

The David Rubenstein Atrium, located on Broadway between W. 62nd and W. 63rd Street will increase the number of free performances it offers in 2016. The New York Times reported that The David Rubenstein Atrium will now put on nearly 150 free performances. Its concert series, previously sponsored by Target, has been rebranded as Atrium 360°, and Lincoln Center has also added four new programs: "The History of the World in 100 Performances with Adam Gopnik," "LC Dialogues," "LC Originals" and "Late Nights at the Atrium."  Lincoln Center is attempting to reach even more people with its prodigious resources and the expanded program. To see all events scheduled at the David Rubenstein Atrium visit MORE.
