History
National Black Theatre’s physical space located at 2031-33 National Black Theatre Way (Fifth Avenue) and consists of a 64,000 square feet complex located on Harlem’s main commercial corridor at 125th Street and Fifth Avenue. Dr. Barbara Ann Teer commissioned GEPPAUL and its Haitian American founder and chief architect Gerard Paul to execute the building’s design. The interior and exterior relief art was commissioned and created on the premises by seven traditional New Sacred Nigerian Artists from Oshogbo, Nigeria. The older North Tower portion of the building faces Fifth Avenue and 126th Street and the newer South Tower faces Fifth Avenue and 125th Street. The building contains 59,200 feet of commercially viable space and comprises the entire 125th – 126th street block front of east Fifth Avenue. The building’s three floors are accessible by elevator. NBT’s third floor is handicapped accessible as well as the bathrooms. Transportation by bus, subway, rail and car is easily accessible, making it an ideal location.
