Lincoln Center Redo To Commence (at least the first part)

Finally – an agreement. Now the first phase of Lincoln Center’s badly-needed redevelopment can get started. “The first phase of this grand effort is to improve West 65th Street. Now it feels less like a thoroughfare and more like an oversize back alley. A hulking overhang crosses the street, throwing much of it into perpetual shadow, and the walls of Lincoln Center on either side loom large and forbidding. Early redesigns featured bright marquees, a transparent bridge and a wide staircase leading up into Lincoln Center on the south side of the street.”
