The New York Times has just announced that The Times Center will open to the public in September 2007. The Times Center is a part of The Times's new headquarters designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano.

Located in the heart of Times Square on West 41st Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, The Times Center will include two major spaces: The Stage and The Hall. Both will serve an array of cultural offerings and will be available for rent for public and private events.

"We are thrilled to have such a beautiful, new home for our many TimesTalks and other New York Times events," said Alyse Myers, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, The New York Times Media Group. "But we are equally delighted to offer a state-of-the-art facility that will change the cultural landscape of New York City once it becomes fully utilized by the city's nonprofit and cultural communities, our advertisers and the general public. It's owned by The Times, but we want people to recognize The Times Center for what it is: a New York institution that is open to everyone."

The Stage features a 378-seat auditorium and a stage that measures 40 feet by 10 feet and can expand by another 10 feet. It is appropriate for lectures, small concerts, film screenings, readings, award programs, debates, seminars, product launches and more. The Stage includes wireless Internet feeds for meetings and distance-learning events as well as greenrooms, dressing rooms and production office facilities.

The Hall, the other component of The Times Center located directly below The Stage, can accommodate 400 people for banquets and as many as 700 for receptions. It is also appropriate for trade shows, exhibitions, lectures and meetings.

The Stage and The Hall are available for rent beginning in September 2007 and are currently accepting reservations. Information on renting can be found at or by calling the booking line at (212) 556-4300. StumbleUpon reddit Facebook Google Plus Tweet This Seed This on Newsvine
