92nd Street Y Announces Makor's New Tribeca Digs

The 92nd Street Y's Makor program of film and cultural events, formerly housed in the Steinhardt Building on the Upper West Side, this afternoon confirmed its new address in Tribeca. The Y is leasing 15,800 square feet at 200 Hudson St., which will house the Makor calendar of film, music, readings and other events as well as the Daytime@ series of activities for New York baby boomers. The City University of New York bought the Steinhardt Building last September with a $30 million donation from philanthropist William Macaulay; Makor and Daytime@ are set to vacate by May.

A press release sent The Reeler's way a little while ago specified some of the features planned for 200 Hudson:

The facility will contain a music-performance space with a bar, a café/performance space separate from the music space, a screening room with two aisles rather than the present single aisle as well as a front-of-screen area large enough for readings and other non-film audience programs, an expandable lecture space, several classrooms, and offices. One of the classrooms will house an art gallery, and there will be gallery space throughout the facility.

Anyone who has ever been stuck in the front row at screenings and/or Q&A at the West 67th St. location will share in my joy at this news. No opening date is specified; the architects at Kostow Greenwood will draw up the remodel for a hopeful (if general) fall 2007 debut.
