“the [Veterans] Room is unique in its appointments and decorations, and is undoubtedly the most magnificent apartment of its kind in New York” - New York Times, 1881
“The preponderating styles appear to be the Greek, Moresque, and Celtic, with a dash of the Egyptian, the Persian and the Japanese.” -The Decorator and Furnisher, 1885
The reception rooms in the Park Avenue Armory were designed by the greatest designers of America’s Gilded Age including Louis Comfort Tiffany, Stanford White and the Herter Brothers. The Silver and Veterans rooms are the only extant Louis Comfort Tiffany-designed rooms in the world. Six historic rooms, ranging size from 500 to 1,650 square feet, are suitable for intimate dinners for 20 to 250 guests or cocktail receptions for up to 800. Historic rooms at the Armory provide a impressive and unique setting for your next event.
The Armory’s drill hall is a magnificent space with latticework truss and soaring dimensions, reminiscent of one of the great 19th Century train sheds of Europe. With approximately 38,000 square feet or useable space, it is one of the City’s largest column-free spaces and has hosted not only drills but music festivals, concerts, benefit dinners, balls, theatrical events, and fashion shows. The use of the drill hall is only limited by your imagination.
