Jerome L Greene Space

Home > New York > Tours
Published September 2nd 2010
Nothing beats a live performance. WNYC Radio, the nation's most-listened to public radio statio, gets that. Hence its new Jerome L Greene Performance Space in the West Village, a street-level public space for music, art exhibits and, yes, broadcasts of the station's shows.

Since opening in April, 2009, the venue has been host to a "Battle of the Bands"-style competition among the five boroughs, conversations with newsmakers, intimate performances by diverse artists, from Lou Reed to Santigold, literary readings, and contemporary art exhibits.

With capabilities for audio, visual and digital programming, the space also brings new opportunities to the radio station's shows, which include ""The Brian Lehrer Show," "The Leonard Lopate Show," and "Soundcheck." Audiences are also invited to experience radio as it is created through tapings in the space's studio.

The best way to stay abreast of all that goes on at the space is through its Twitter feed, where you can learn about shows, goings-on, and even get discounts to performances.

With a capacity for less than 200 at the space, you'll feel like you're in on a unique, only-in-New York experience at each live event, especially once it gets broadcast to thousands.
