If one of your primary reasons for being in the city is to take advantage of its extensive arts scene, it only makes sense to choose an apartment near your favorite venues. Here are six with direct access to some of the best theater, music, dance and film spaces the city has to offer.

Located blocks from the Apollo Theater—where you can catch theater, classical and jazz music, and dance, not to mention the venue’s legendary Amateur Night—is this 1,940-square-foot three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath townhouse duplex at 310 West 120th Street (for rent at $7,250/month) with a gas fireplace in the living room and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen.

This newly renovated three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath condo at 160 West 66th Street (listed at $4.21 million) has an open kitchen-dining-living area with a hearth fireplace and a chef’s kitchen and an oversized center island. Best of all, the apartment sits atop Lincoln Center in a building with two entrances, including one that delivers residents directly into the performing arts complex where they can reach the Metropolitan Opera House, David Geffen Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and more in minutes.

This three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath condo at 157 West 57th Street (on the market for $9.995 million) features over 2,500 square feet of space, Central Park views, and a killer location just across the street from Carnegie Hall, where you can catch upcoming performances by the likes of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and comedian Tracy Morgan.

A couple of can-can kicks away from Radio City Music Hall (home of the the Rockettes and the Radio City Christmas Spectacular) and Broadway is this one-bedroom, one-bath condo at 1600 Broadway (priced at $1.335 million) with an eat-in kitchen in which to whip up a quick bite before or after the theatre.

For enthusiasts of the avant garde, this sunny, parlor-floor condo at 264 Greene Avenue in Clinton Hill (giong for $1.095 million) boasts 11-foot ceilings, oversized windows and two garden-facing bedrooms—and a quick 20-minute walk to Brooklyn Academy of Music, which has been showcasing the work of adventurous emerging artists and innovative modern masters for 150 years.
