The 14th Regiment Armory, also known as the Eighth Avenue Armory and the Park Slope Armory, is a historic National Guard armory building located in the South Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City. It is a brick and stone castle-like structure completed in 1893, and designed to be reminiscent of medieval military structures in Europe. It was designed by William Mundell and originally built for the 14th Regiment of the New York State Militia.
It consists of a two-story, flat-roofed administration building with an attached 1.5-story, barrel vaulted drill shed, spanning open space of 70,000 square feet (6,500 m2). The building features asymmetrical 3- and 4-story towers. It is constructed of brick and sits on a stone foundation of Warsaw bluestone with bluestone trim and details. Since the 1980s, CAMBA, a non-profit organization based in Flatbush has operated the Park Slope Armory Women's Shelter at the Armory. The building was renovated in 2007, and is used as a sports complex operated by the Prospect Park YMCA.
The Armory was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994, and was designated a New York City landmark in 1998.
