Park Avenue Armory
parkavenuearmory1
This New York City landmark houses a series of 16 period rooms from the late 19th century, designed by such luminaries as Louis Comfort Tiffany and the Herter Brothers. The Armory has been transformed into one of the city's premier alternative spaces for showing art; the beauty of this historical setting allows for interesting visual contrast with the series of contemporary projects commissioned by the nonprofit arts organization.

I've only been here for two art installations (an event of a thread and the back door), but both were fantastic! The architecture alone is worth walking into this building -- from the Tiffany glass to the gorgeous moldings and wood floors in the drill hall.

Loved this space. It was a great way to spend a Friday night. Martin Creed's exhibit was genuinely fun and entertaining and it's so crazy how large this space truly is, considering it's location on the upper east side. They also will let you wander around the exhibit with drinks so order a mimosa and wander the galleries!

If you get the opportunity to see an event at this location, GO!  Located uptown, this tremendous venue has hosted multiple art and music events.  The sheer size and depth of the venue is breath taking.  I saw a video installation and they had a 90 foot video screen in the center that omitted sounds and light while viewers sat around it.  Please don't miss the ornate rooms when you first enter the building.  Each room has been painstakingly refurbished to look as it originally had.  The "Tiffany's" room was recently completed and I could only imagine how gorgeous it looks.
