Perfection runs in every event we set

Located in the heart of upper Manhattan and strategically positioned at the crossroads of the West Side, the Armory offers an iconic presence to so many; steeped in antiquity and regarded as an integral piece of Manhattan's long standing history. 

The Armory has had a special place in New York City for over 100 years. Built originally to house local units of the state's volunteer militia and later the National Guard, The Armory later became the hub for the City's track and field enthusiast. The building was repurposed in the early 1980s as a homeless shelter, and for ten years its famed track became lost behind painted black windows and under 1,800 beds. Today, with the help of private contributions, the spirit of The Armory as a place competition and fellowship has been restored. Now recognized as one of the fastest tracks in the world, The Armory is creating a new history and making possible, the dreams of our future generations of America.
