Great Hall History

Great Hall History

“…an eerie windowless space with a cathedral-high ceiling and irregularly curved walls that suggest convulsive ripples in time and space.”

Rolling Stone


“Stepping into the Great Hall is one of those ‘Oh, my God’ experiences.”

New York Daily News


“Its glory is one of the grandest, eeriest, and least-seen spaces in all New York.”

The New Yorker


“Standing in the darkened room, towered over by undulating walls of glowing blue glass, I literally felt like I had left the planet.”

Scouting New York


“…at least as futuristic as it is medieval.”
