MONOCHROME MONDAY - NEW YORK'S PARK AVENUE ARMORY





The Armory's mission is to revitalize one of America's historic treasures as an alternative arts space unlike any other in NYC.  Part palace, part industrial shed (a 55,000 square foot drill hall), the Armory provides a non-traditional setting for the performing and visual arts.  I was there recently attending the International Fine Print Dealers Association Fair.  Looking up, a fine example of industrial architectural construction of the 1900s. Below, rows and rows of 20th century, well lighted, sophisticated gallery booths showing rare art pieces at very high prices - and some bargains, too.
