The Greene Space was created to galvanize conversations around the life, arts, and politics of our city and our world and to be a platform for innovation and experimentation. For the first time, New Yorkers will be welcomed inside New York Public Radio to experience great radio as it is created and to host events of their own!
The space hosts broadcasts and live tapings of signature programs from WNYC Studios and WQXR (including The Brian Lehrer Show, Radiolab, Studio 360, On The Media).
In addition, music concerts and festivals, audio theater, literary readings, art exhibits, political debates, symposia, town hall meetings, and other exciting public events are presented in the space.
A news ticker carves through The Greene Space and out through the windows on Varick Street, making breaking news available to passersby, including some 35 million en route to the Holland Tunnel annually.
The Greene Space is outfitted with cutting-edge digital audio and video production systems and will live as vibrantly in the virtual arena as in its physical home. The use of recycled paper for printed materials, low-wattage LED theatrical lighting, a stage made of renewable bamboo, and interactive programs on environmental issues are just some of the ways The Greene Space will stay green.
Our venues beautifully blend form and function, combining rich design with modern amenities while keeping sustainability in mind. They serve as the ideal backdrop to meet your event needs and enhance your guest experience with stunning views, history, artwork and more.
