The New York Genome Center

The New York Genome Center’s (NYGC) event space is located at 101 Avenue of the Americas (101AOA) just north of Canal Street, where the SoHo, Tribeca, and Hudson Square neighborhoods come together.

The brand-new space, located on the ground floor of the 101 building, has its own private entrance, a 180-seat auditorium, and a 92-seat cafe area. Both the auditorium and cafe areas can be reconfigured to fit multiple events.

There are a modern warming kitchen and a state-of-the-art AV system with projectors and drop-down screens as well as a video in the cafe area.

All of our spaces are bright and open, with soaring ceilings and tall windows that let the natural light pour in.
