Park Avenue Armory
The Park Avenue Armory is also known as the Seventh Regiment Armory and is a National Guard Armory building. The New York State’s Seventh Regiment of the National Guard, a volunteer militia, built Park Avenue Armory in 1861.
Shows at Park Avenue Armory blend theatre, visual art exhibitions as well as the performing arts to create a unique space. The first production at Park Avenue Armory was in 2007 — artist Aaron Young choreographed 12 motorcycles to create a painting. In recent years, New York premieres have taken place including The Lehman Trilogy, now transferring to the Nederlander Theatre.
