What if there was a place you could hear a brass quartet ensemble, participate in a poetry slam, learn to move to the Salsa beat, see Shakespeare’s work come alive, view a vibrant watercolor exhibit and sip tea in a Victorian parlor? What if all these opportunities and more were housed in two 130 year old landmark buildings in the middle of a neighborhood undergoing a renaissance; where galleries, restaurants, other historic sites, the railroad station and the majestic Hudson River are only blocks away?
