Ray brings the theater back to life
The OLD & THE NEW
"Upon entering the space at 42nd st it was a bit deceiving because you actually walk into the smaller part of the space if you want to call it that. The ground floor level, In the far distance you see a set of stairs which don’t seem to be much but a set of stairs. As I walked up those stairs and entered the Liberty Theatre it was totally (shock and awe) the history of this space immediately consumed me and the architectural elements were so amazing. The immediate thing to consider was taking the larger space and bringing into the smaller one. Also because we are creating a restaurant there keeping with the integrity of the space and still accomplishing the vision. This is a landmark building and of the most famous building in new york dating back to 1904 the building was actually picked up and moved back 100 ft to make room for an expansion project where the Hilton hotel now rest on top of the space." — Ray
