100 W. 55th St., New York, NY 10019

Originally built in 1923 as a meeting hall for the Ancient Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, this neo-Moorish facility, perhaps best known for its terra cotta tile rooftop, exterior tile work, and three Moller pipe organs, now houses the New York City Center. Today distinguished companies like the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, Manhattan Theatre Club and The Pearl Theatre Company make their home here. The Center also hosts its own programs, including the Tony-honored Encores! musical theater series and annual Fall for Dance Festival, which features everything from hip hop to ballet.
