The Ultimate Guide to Lincoln Center


After 17 years at Bryant Park, Fashion Week will stake its claim on Lincoln Center for the first time this month. The move is not without its perks: the mall-like Columbus Circle, a high-low mix of restaurants, proximity to Central Park (you know, if you feel like going for a stroll in those spike heels). But at the end of the day, it’s still the Upper West Side. We’ve charted a map for all your Fashion Week essentials, from booze to Band-Aids. Scroll below to find the top spots in a 15-block radius for free coffee, a wireless hookup, an emergency pair of ballet flats, and a celebratory glass of wine (or, depending on your day, a shot of tequila). Get to know your new week-long stomping grounds.
