    Fantastic eg. of a sensitive touch in preserving historical decoration yet modernizing usage. Kudos to the vision of Herzog & de Meuron. Get a peep to all the spaces via the weekly 75mins tours @$10.

    Opening 12/9, Douglas Gordon’s exhibition will feature classical pianist Hélène Grimaud in the middle of a 37,000-square foot lake that will slowly fill the Armory each night as she begins to play. Read more

    When you inevitably put off going to see whatever amazing show is here until the last weekend, purchase your tickets ahead of time online (http://www.armoryonpark.org) and skip the hour+ wait

    When its not hosting some of NYC's best art installations, the beautiful interior of the Park Avenue Armory serves as the Commodore's mansion in HBO's Boardwalk Empire

    Fabulous conservation tour on Thursdays at 10AM. Well worth the time and $10. Excellent history, design, architecture insights.

    A unique venue in New York. Fairs, and art installations are neat, but hearing Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms or John Luther Adams’ Inuksuit in such a huge space is quite an experience...

    The Park Avenue Armory hosts the Winter Antiques Show - the show is like walking inside a private museum with fantastic curators happy to share the many fascinating histories of each of their objects.

    This place is incredible and a gem within nyc. The architecture alone is stunning, but be sure to check out their impressive calendar of events.

    A gorgeous old building! Many of the ground floor rooms are open to the public even if you aren't seeing an exhibit. Stop in and check out the space and catch an show.

    One of the most impressive collections of 1880s interior decoration outside of a museum; only armory actually owned by the unit for which it was constructed
