Peter Norton Symphony Space

2537 Broadway at 95th St. New York, NY 10025 | West 90s | 212-864-5400

Location Description:

The classiest New York attraction to boast an epilepsy-inducing neon marquee (unless you count the McDonald's in Times Square), Peter Norton Symphony Space is a small, impeccably curated theater on the Upper West Side. The Space is, hands-down, the best venue in town to take in world music; the acoustics and intimacy guarantee an experience out of time. Hawaiian ukulele and Iranian spike fiddle are just some of the recent, incredibly varied offerings; don't miss out on this modest gem.
