Buy & Sell Vinyl, CDs, DVDs. Browse 150,000 new & used titles
The Met Opera was founded in 1880 as an alternative to the Academy of Music. The Academy represented the highest social circle in New York society, and the board of directors were reluctant to allow members of new wealthy families into their circle.
The Met Opera House, with approximately 3,800 seats, is located at Lincoln Center in Lincoln Square in the Upper West Side and was designed by architect Wallace K. Harrison. Although west-east roads do not run through Lincoln Center itself, the Metropolitan Opera House is parallel to the block from West 63rd St. to West 64th St. The back end of the House meets Amsterdam Avenue and the entrance to the Opera House is at Lincoln Center Plaza, which begins at Columbus Avenue.
Princeton Record Exchange appreciates the contribution Met Opera provides to the local community and has created the below directions for your convenience. We hope that while you're in Princeton you also take the opportunity to browse our music and movie selection.
You can help contribute to the music community by selling us your unwanted CDs, DVDs and Vinyl, so that they will be recycled into the hands of music and movie lovers who can appreciate them again.
