  7. 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.

  8. Patti LuPone

    Tony-winning actress Patti LuPone was interviewed in Time Out New York last year, and informed us she was confused about the changes in Times Sqaure:
    TONY: What is the biggest thing that’s happened to the city in the past 13 years?

    Patti LuPone: What the hell are they doing to Times Square? This is my question. Is it a theme park? Is it a walking district? Is it a pedicab-carriage district? Is it a strip mall? Frankly, I wish they would go back to the fact that this is the theater district, and allow it to be the theater district. Enough with the MTV and the Hard Rock Cafe. I so preferred it when my life was in danger walking the streets of Times Square. I would rather have a sex shop than an Applebee’s.

    When TONY asked her to complete the sentence, “New York is…” she responded: “…my hometown. My workplace. My breath. My craft. My culture. My education. A lot of my fears. My blood and soul.”

    Want to know a secret? That kind of made us wish Patti LuPone was our mom.

    On Feb 14, Patti LuPone and another New York icon, WNYC’s Leonard Lopate, will be here for The Broadway Life, a discussion of her illustrious career as a performer and her roles both onstage and off. Purchase tickets here.
