Overview

Hudson Hall offers a year-round schedule of arts and cultural programming in the 1855 former Hudson City Hall which contains New York State’s oldest surviving theatre. Since opening the first restored room in December of 1997, five rooms on the first floor and our magnificent upstairs performance hall have been rehabilitated, and we have presented thousands of cultural and educational programs. Hudson Hall provides free or low-cost cultural offerings every week of the year. Ongoing programs include concerts, readings, lectures, exhibitions, theater and dance presentations, after-school programs, workshops, classes, and large-scale community arts events like Winter Walk, which celebrated its 21st year in 2017.

We went for a free concert by TON (The Orchestra Now) at this hall. The stage is a bit small, so only a subset of the orchestra could fit. Also the stage is rather high. But the acoustics are excellent. The place has exhibition space...More

Was nothing to see. Needs to be restored. Wasn't what I expected. They had a little history of the place but wasn't really interesting. It ws in and out in 15 minutes. Would not recommend it.

Oldest such place in NYC. In process of renovation after years of abandonment, so be prepared for an old place. But worth the visit to see a performance space that must have been grand in its day.
