Symphony Space

2537 Broadway New York, NY 10025-6947 | West 90s | 212-864-5400

Location Description:

Symphony Space provides just that. A massive, contemporary, multi-theater venue tailored for classical and jazz performance, but catering to dance, literature, comedy, and film as well as the musical genres. It opened doors in 1978 and has since become a New York institution, though one that primarily serves its affluent, older neighbors. It's location on the Upper West Side makes for quiet, aesthetically pleasing surroundings, but aside from high-end stores and groceries, that stretch of Broadway can be sparse. Walk over to the more lively Amsterdam Avenue for restaurants or to grab a beer.
