No mike, just an amateur theatre enthusiast who goes around cities of the world, photographing the buildings and researching their history. Glad to hear you enjoy looking at my ‘work’.

Ken….I did a quick check on 419 7th Avenue. I believe the first c/o I found for this address was from 1927. Its listed as a 414 seat moving picture theater. Actually NYC gives the address as 419-21 7th Avenue but 419 is just fine. Are you going to write this one up?

Lost Memory;I have submitted the Minerva Theatre. I have many more theatres in NYC to add, but first I want to catch up on posting photographs I took of theatre’s already listed, particulary those which currently have no image posted up.

If ya wanna cry, check out the apartment tower that’s going up right behind the site of the 16th Street Theater below Fifth Avenue. At least someone’s LIVING INSIDE the old Globe on 15th above Fifth !!!
