  • NYC good place quiet
  • Small in seating capacity. Not top class performance facility. Students grade performance facility. Management are rigid and not well facilitate user's need there. They run major performance even but the canteen was not coped with the need and closed. User need to walk a bit far away to get a meal before the art performance. My feeling of the management people is Not professional.
