The New York Times notes the big news this morning:
The 92nd Street Y’s Makor and Daytime programs are headed to Tribeca from the West Side of Manhattan. The Y is to announce today that it has signed a lease with Trinity Real Estate for 15,000 square feet at 200 Hudson Street, at Canal Street, to house the programs beginning in the fall. Kostow Greenwood Architects will design the site. The West Side location, at 35 West 67th Street, donated to the Y in 2001 by the philanthropist Michael H. Steinhardt, was sold in September to the City University of New York, which plans to use it as the home of its Honors College. Makor’s cultural programs serve young adults, particularly those on the margins of Jewish life; Daytime serves retired or semiretired baby boomers.
The expansive ground-floor location is 200 Hudson Street, pictured above. It will contain a music-performance space with a bar, a café/performance space separate from the music space, a screening room with two aisles rather than the present single aisle, an expandable lecture space, several classrooms, a gallery and more. Kostow Greenwood Architects, the firm selected for the project, has designed, renovated and restored the Brooklyn Tabernacle, Central Park’s Delacorte Theater, the Brooklyn Museum, the Joyce Theater and many other cultural and performing arts spaces.
When will it all be ready? This fall. Any questions? Shoot us an email or leave it in the comments.
