Help Us Thrive for Centuries to Come
When New York City Center first opened in 1943, our founder Mayor Fiorello La Guardia made a prediction: “All that is best in the arts will provide the spirit and the soul of this Center, which I now predict will live for centuries to come.”
Since then, we have survived national emergencies, natural disasters, and financial crises. Through it all, our history has shown that the arts have the power to uplift and heal, especially during times of uncertainty.
During this challenging time, we ask you to share in that vision and help keep Manhattan’s oldest performing arts center running strong. Please consider making a gift today and join the entire City Center staff and crew in upholding Mayor La Guardia’s promise to keep City Center open for centuries to come.
