Situated in the middle of Washington Heights, the Armory can provide a welcoming space for our small, community-based non-profit neighbor organizations to host meetings or small get-togethers on topics that would be of interest to the community.
This application process is designed to award those who apply to be granted use on a first come, first served basis. The Armory depends heavily on rentals to pay for programs, especially during spring, summer and early fall months, but will make every effort to accommodate community-based organizations’ requests. Please contact Glennis Aquino at GAquino@armorytrack.com or 212.923.1803 x 7010 for all inquires. Send all details regarding event (event date and time, anticipated attendance, etc.), along with copy of 501 (c)3 letter to verify non-profit status, to GAquino@armorytrack.com.
The Armory extends the complimentary use of space to Community Board 12, including space for general and committee meetings.
