Inside the Park Avenue Armory

Park Avenue Armory, NYC
Photo by myself inside the Park Avenue Armory, at 67th and Park, on the Upper East Side.

The interiors of the Park Avenue Armory reflect the building's history; it was built in the late 1800s.

Some of the front rooms are as they were originally built, with soaring, decorated ceilings and large fireplaces. Some of the ceilings show signs of water damage, and are patched up.

The armory hosts musical and dance performances year-around. It can also be rented for special venues.
