Park Avenue Armory

Park Avenue Armory


Neighborhood: Upper East Side
Type of Place: Theaters

Part palace, part industrial shed, Park Avenue Armory fills a critical void in the cultural ecology of New York by enabling artists to create, and the public to experience, unconventional work that could not otherwise be mounted in traditional performance halls and museums. With its soaring 55,000-square-foot WADE THOMPSON DRILL HALL—reminiscent of 19th-century European train stations—and array of exuberant PERIOD ROOMS, the Armory inspires artists to draw upon its grand scale and distinctive character and captivates audiences with its ability to provide intense, dramatic, intimate, and immersive experiences.   - Emily Hagburg, 11/09/2011
