New York Society for Ethical Culture

The concert hall of the New York Society for Ethical Culture, on West 64th Street and Central Park West, was built in 1911, seats 800 people, and has hosted guests from Albert Einstein and Teddy Roosevelt to Bob Dylan, Billy Bragg, and numerous classical and chamber ensembles. The space is a converted church that was completely renovated in 2003. The seats are pews, and overhead hangs a giant chandelier, with numerous statues and antique woodwork surrounding in the balcony.
