The Park Avenue Armory is a fascinating arts and event space on the Upper East Side of Manhattan that is “part palace, part industrial shed.” The armory recently completed a year-long restoration and renovation on their famous Veterans Room.
Our friends at Untapped Cities recently visited the Park Avenue Armory to check out the restoration.
The restoration of the Veterans Room in the Park Avenue Armory, located on Park Avenue and 67th Street, was recently completed, after fourteen months, by the Swiss firm Herzog & de Neuron. The Veterans Room is one of the few surviving interior spaces in the entire world created by Louis C. Tiffany and other prominent artisans associated with this project. In fact, at the time, Tiffany was known only as a landscape painter. He was 31 and hadn’t created his first lamp yet.
