The David Rubenstein Atrium, a vibrant public visitors' and ticketing facility on Broadway between 62nd and 63rd Streets, is open daily with an array of services for local residents, the general public, and the thousands of people who visit Lincoln Center and the surrounding community every day.

Formerly known as the Harmony Atrium, it is one of approximately 503 Privately Owned Public Spaces (POPS) in New York City created under a longstanding program that offers zoning incentives for buildings to provide accessible public spaces. The Harmony Atrium was originally conceived as a lively gathering place for local residents as well as visitors, and The David Rubenstein Atrium proudly fulfills this original vision, hosting regular film screenings, informal gatherings and multimedia performances.

The facility is named in honor of the philanthropist, financier, and Vice Chairman of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts David Rubenstein, in recognition of his $10 million gift to the Bravo Campaign. The Tod Williams Billie Tsien design reflects a respect for the materials used throughout Lincoln Center and provides an open, accessible, and inviting environment.
