Located on the historic Upper West Side, The Astor is a quick walk from some of the finest arts and performance spaces in the world. From Lincoln Center to the American Museum of Natural History, The Astor’s residents have convenient access to an array of historical and contemporary cultural experiences.
Less than a block from the building’s front doors is the historic Beacon Theatre, which opened in the 1920s as a movie and vaudeville theater before being converted to a music venue in the 1970s. The Beacon still draws world-class performers from pop’s past and present, as well as stage and comedy shows, making it a favorite of Upper West Siders who love rock, disco, funk, and folk.
Great acts at the Beacon Theatre give residents of The Astor’s Upper West Side condos countless opportunities to see their favorite musicians. Residents who prefer an eclectic sound will want to secure tickets for Earth, Wind & Fire at the Beacon Theatre on July 9th and 10th. The iconic disco and soul group has been on the scene for almost 50 years and is still bringing down the house with their unmistakable brand of infectious dance music.
On July 28th, singer Kirk Franklin will grace the Beacon Theatre with his brand of soulful gospel for a one-night performance. As part of the tour for his latest album, singer/songwriter Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20 fame will play shows on two consecutive nights, July 29th and 30th. In August, the musical excellence will continue when jazz musician Herbie Hancock and rocker Mark Knopfler bring their acts to the Beacon’s legendary stage.
But proximity to the Beacon is only part of what makes The Astor the ultimate expression of Upper West Side living. From the moment that residents step into the lovingly restored lobby, which combines original prewar elements with modern materials, they know that living at The Astor is a way of connecting with New York’s architectural legacy without sacrificing modern convenience and luxury.
