This site is now occupied by a recently constructed apartment house. This, in turn, replaced whatever building occupied the site after the Gayety’s demolition.Except for its relatively brief use as a cinema during the 1910’s, the Gayety struggled on as a legitimate for most of its life. This probably worked to its fatal disadvantage during the 20’s and 30’s, when vaudevile “died' and there were all too many movie houses in the neighborhood.Finally, I found that I supplied the wrong zip code in the introduction. It should be 11206 – not 11211. (The address is situated very close to the boundary.) Sorry about this, and I hope this error will be corrected.
