Westbeth provides affordable live-work space for nearly 400 artists and their families at the historic site of the former Bell Laboratories campus in the West Village. Westbeth opened in 1970 as an early example of large-scale adaptive reuse of an industrial building and comprises an entire New York City block facing the Hudson River.
Now a storied arts institution, in its time as Bell Labs, the campus was the site of invention for many of the 20th century’s most significant technological contributions. These inventions include chain broadcasting, the vacuum tube, and the transatlantic telephone. Its scientific significance, as well as the prominent artists it has housed, have contributed to the recognition of Westbeth’s legacy. Westbeth was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009 and was named an official New York City Landmark in 2011.
One of world’s largest artists’ housing facilities in the world, Westbeth was home to the Merce Cunningham Dance Company for over 40 years. It now houses the Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance, The New School for Drama graduate program, the School for Poetic Computation and other arts nonprofits.
An active tenants association is responsible for arts programming and enrichment within the community.
