Join WCC on a tour of the Seventh Regiment Armory, also known as the Park Avenue Armory, and view the unique qualities of this landmark building, from the 55,000-square-foot Drill Hall to the extraordinary interiors by Louis Comfort Tiffany, Stanford White, Candace Wheeler, Herter Brothers and others. The magnificent Board of Officers Room and Veterans Room on the first floor and two rooms on the second floor have been restored and renovated to the design of Herzog & de Meuron. The walking tour explores the first-floor period rooms, views the Drill Hall, and visits some of the second-floor areas not normally on view to the public. We will learn about the Armory’s military and social history, new artistic programming, restoration and renovation plans, and the building’s future as a new New York City cultural institution. After the tour, join the group for a Dutch treat lunch at a neighborhood restaurant. Space is limited.
