On this day in 1930, our building at 92nd Street and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan formally opened. (Our history dates back to 1874.) Considered the largest and best-equipped Jewish community center in the US, facilities included dormitory for 235 men, two gymnasiums, a 25-yard pool, kosher cafeteria, billiard room and many other amenities.
While still a thriving community center, over the years 92Y grew into a cultural center as well. You can attend talks with Oliver Stone, readings with Martin Amis, concerts with András Schiff and much more.
