Village Voice's Description
This 12,000 square foot concert was originally built by Oscar Hammerstein in 1906 as an opera house. It's since been a vaudeville hall, a Freemasons' Temple, and, in its current incarnation, a marquee-name pop music venue. Acts as diverse as Weezer and Underworld have performed here but, with a capacity of 3,000, it can often be difficult to see the stage from the standing-room, unslanted first floor. Regardless, Hammerstein has opera house-quality acoustics, so every seat sounds like the best in house.
Tips from foursquare
Charlie Chaplin said in 1978 that “it was Willie Hammerstein, Oscar’s son, who invented pie-throwing” as a gag for one of Chaplin’s acts.
