New York Reduces Financial Aid To Lincoln Center

A few years ago, then-New York mayor Rudy Giuliani pledged $24 million a year for ten years to Lincolnm Center’s rebuilding project. But new mayor Michael Bloomberg has decided to reduce the amount. “For the next fiscal year Mr. Bloomberg’s preliminary budget has reduced Lincoln Center’s $24 million allotment to $5 million. City officials acknowledge that these measures indicate an increasingly hard-line approach toward cultural organizations, the largest of which is Lincoln Center.”
