The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space's mission is to galvanize conversations around the life, arts and politics of our city and our world, and to be a platform for innovation and experimentation. Opened in 2009 on the ground floor of New York Public Radio’s headquarters, the performance space welcomes New Yorkers inside to experience great radio as it’s created. Now, boundaries between street and studio are made transparent and the possibility for dynamic dialogue is limitless as we meet our audiences everywhere they are — on air, online and on the street. The Greene Space hosts live broadcasts and tapings of WNYC’s signature programs; concerts and festivals from WQXR, New York City’s sole 24-hour classical music station; and wide-ranging events such as the Battle of the Boroughs talent quest, The NEXT New York Conversation series and A New Theater of Sound. A multimedia performance venue, The Greene Space is outfitted with cutting-edge digital audio and video production systems that allow it to live as vibrantly in the virtual arena as it does in its physical home. Each year, thousands of people experience the 125-seat venue, and millions more download podcasts and stream audio and video of live events created in the space. A news ticker carves through The Greene Space and out to the windows on Varick Street, making breaking news available to passersby, including some 35 million en route to the Holland Tunnel annually. The use of recycled paper for printed materials, low-wattage LED theatrical lighting, a stage made of renewable bamboo and interactive programs on environmental issues are just some of the ways The Greene Space will stay green.
