Founded in 1962, the Philharmonic Hall was the first building to be concluded at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

Designed by the renowned American architect, Max Abramovitz, the project houses the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States.

Moreover, based on the astounding donation of $10.5 million, in 1973, it was renamed to Avery Fisher Hall. It’s benefactor, Avery Fisher, was a philanthropist and music lover.

Later, in 2015, if was once again renamed and is now know as David Geffen Hall, another philanthropist, as well as a business magnate and producer.

His philosophy was to give back to the world what music had given to him. Sounds perfect!

Today, the philharmonic entertains over 50 million music lover a year. It also offers annual free concerts across the city, because of it’s community-driven passion. These includes the famous Concerts in the Parks – in Central Park.

Plus, a few extra infos:

“Beginning in 1842, the New York Philharmonic’s historic collections are some of the longest running, most comprehensive Archives in the world of performing arts. An early tradition of documenting all activities began even before the first concert and continues today.

Located in the Rose Building at Lincoln Center, the Philharmonic Archives welcomes researchers by appointment only.

Take a look at their Instagram page (@NYPhilharmonic) to keep posted on the upcoming performances, or go to their website to read about the up coming events calendar!


Furthermore, it’s location can be a bit confusing. It’s on the north side of Lincoln Center, at Broadway and West 65th Street.

The Lower East Side went from being a neighborhood known by the bohemian NYC society, to a place that sheltered European immigrants. Now, it’s transforming into a destination where people scout for great restaurants and bars.

So, we joined forces and hosted this event with 2 great Instagrammer friends Create NYC and Hidden Gem of NYC.

Uniting our constant curious “state of being”, we decided to create a meet-up. The idea was to explore the neighborhood and its history. We designed the project to serve the community. We wanted to market for those who are new or underserved in the neighborhood.

Through out the meet-up, the group explored interesting and hidden spots of LES. The group met the people who are making a difference to the community.

To start, the guests walked around in a pre-determined route. We organized the experience with around 10 different businesses. The venues ranged from art galleries, graffiti spots (100 Gates Project), to coffee shops, restaurants and stores.

As a result, the business owners and artists of each place talked about their experiences. They also shared their stories and knowledge of the neighborhood.

Also, there was a symbolic fee of $25 per person. We donated all proceeds to local charities that are a part of the LES Community. These charities were: The Bowery Mission and the Tenement Museum.

Below, the list of our Presenting Sponsors in this project: TheTenementMuseum, ShakeShack, BoweryMission, HesterStreetFair and other amazing companies!

Also, take a look at some of our On-Going Tours in Manhattan, Brooklyn and more!

To finish, if you’re interested in exploring the Lower East Side of Manhattan and would like a customized tour, let us know. For company activities and experiences, contact our experts. #UncoverLES with us!
