- 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
- PHOTO: Comedian Milton Berle seems to be losing his tennis match against some youngsters at the Armory in 1951, at the link!

- 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
- Go see "No Man's Land" by French artist Christian Boltanski. Look carefully at the clothes on the ground and the clothes in the pile.
- So much cooler than most Manhattan museums and so uniquely New York.
- Ann Hamilton Event of a Thread!
- 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...
- 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
- Welcome to Hogwarts.
