The New York City Opera is in the planning stages of building a new home for itself on the site of the old Red Cross building (right) adjacent to Lincoln Center at Amsterdam and 66th Street. Reports the NYT, "The opera house would sit beneath a residential tower. The plan would require the approval of the Planning Commission, the community board and other agencies. It has not yet been determined who would pay for the opera house or how much it would cost."
