The Greene Space at WNYC/WQXR is celebrating five years as New York Public Radio's open gathering place! 

Since we burst onto New York City's cultural scene on April 28, 2009, our mission has been to galvanize conversations around the life, arts and politics of our city and our world. 

Take a look at just some of the memorable faces who've visited us in the past five years - and share your favorite moments and performances in the comments below.

Marilyn morse from Manhattan

For many years my husband and I have donated twelve hundred dollars a year to WNYC yet we have never been invited to any of the performances just viewed on your video. Were all these performances offered to the public at large for a fee?And do the Producer Circle members just get invited in June?
