About this site

Park Avenue Armory’s mission is to revitalize one of America’s historic treasures as a dynamic alternative arts space unlike any other in New York. Part palace, part industrial shed, the Armory is dedicated to the development and presentation of work in the visual and performing arts best realized in a non-traditional setting. With its Gilded Age interiors and soaring 55,000-square-foot Drill Hall, the Armory allows artists to create – and audiences to experience – epic, immersive and adventurous work that cannot be done anywhere else. The Armory seeks to stimulate the most ambitious and innovative work many artists will undertake in their career. Such has been its impact in its first five years that in December 2011 The New York Times noted “Park Avenue Armory…has arrived as the most important new cultural institution in New York City.”

If you think the Armory’s drill hall is beautiful, take a look at Company D.

Located on the second floor of the Armory’s headhouse, Company D was originally outfitted by Pottier & Stymus, a storied interior decorating concern active in New York from 1859 to 1910. Since Park Avenue Armory took stewardship of the building, Company D has served as one of the pilot rooms for Herzog & de Meuron's stunning restoration plan.
