Park Avenue Armory, NYC Interior

Park Avenue Armory is a newly-launched, not-for-profit arts organization whose mission is to revitalize this important landmark as a unique alternative arts space. Built by the elite Seventh Regiment between 1877 and 1881, Park Avenue Armory contains interiors designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, Stanford White, the Herter Brothers and other prominent artists of the period and has been called “the single most important collection of 19th century interiors to survive intact in one building” by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. Its soaring 55,000 square foot drill hall, is built like a 19th century European train shed.
