Trivia & History

Revolutionary in its construction, there are no box seats or columns. Thus, the auditorium has no obsctructed views.


The auditorium was immediately in demand for theatre, concerts, lectures and speaking engagements. Theodore Roosevelt, Booker T. Washington, Margaret Sanger, Buckminster Fuller, Winston Churchill, and Woodrow Wilson all spoke there.


In 1987, Town Hall was designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Comission, and in 2012 was added to the list of National Historic Landmarks.
