Leonard Bernstein Place



Yesterday, October 14, marked the anniversary of the passing of one of America’s greatest musical talents: Leonard Bernstein. The legendary conductor led the first concert ever at Lincoln Center, with the New York Philharmonic (nyphil) at Philharmonic Hall (now called Avery Fisher Hall) in 1962. Today, the intersection of Broadway, Columbus Avenue and West 65th Street, at the corner of Avery Fisher Hall, is named in his honor.
