About the Armory

Each year, hundreds of clients seek out the armory to host their special events – including corporate functions, galas, bar/bat mitzvahs, weddings, fashion shows, film shoots and more.

Located in the heart of Upper Manhattan and strategically positioned at the crossroads of the west side, the armory offers an iconic presence; steeped in history and regarded as an integral piece of Manhattan’s long-standing history.

The Armory has had a special place in New York City for over 100 years. Built originally to house local units of the state’s volunteer militia and then the national guard, the armory later became the hub for the city’s track and field enthusiasts and currently plays host to the national track & field hall of fame.

From our soaring 65,000 square-foot open space to our elegant reception areas and private meeting spaces, the armory has it all.

The perfect venue for your next event – corporate or social – whether it is for 5,000 of your closest friends or 10 of your most elite clients, our highly experienced team will turn your vision into an event that your guests will not soon forget.

While you enjoy the glorious setting, you will also become a contributor to the armory. All event fees support the services and programs of this great non-profit institution.
