On June 13, The New York Times published an article on the history of Lincoln Center, which was once known as the vibrant neighborhood of San Juan Hill. Once a hub for jazz and the arts, and one of the largest Black neighborhoods in Manhattan, San Juan Hill was paved over in the 1950s in favor of the Lincoln Center complex.

Lincoln Center will now redesign the western edge of the complex facing the remains of San Juan Hill. The design team—WEISS/MANFREDI with Hood Design Studio and Moody Nolan—will reimagine the space, starting with reinvigorating Damrosch Park and tearing down the wall that physically and metaphorically separates the two neighborhoods.
