There are several Armory buildings in NYC located through Manhattan, The 71st Regiment Armory, designed by Clinton & Russell in 1905, on Park Avenue at 34th Street had a great tower modeled on a tower in Siena, Italy. It was demolished to make way for a mixed-use tower now known as 3 Park Avenue. Not many complete armories remain, the most famous being the Seventh Regiment Armory on the west side of Park Avenue between 66th and 67th Street, and the 1851 State Arsenal Building on Fifth Avenue at 64th Street that is now the headquarters of the New York City Department of Parks.
