On The Music Trails

A new roadmap of New York City’s unparalleled music history lists the Brooklyn Campus along with Carnegie Hall, the Cotton Club, Lincoln Center and Roseland Ballroom among 30 musically historical sites around the city. Published by the New York City Host Committee for the 45th Grammy Awards, the map of the New York City Music Trail highlights Brooklyn’s former Paramount Movie Theatre, now a part of the Brooklyn Campus gymnasium and Luntey Commons.

From 1928 to 1954, the Paramount featured movies plus live performances by Mae West, Bing Crosby, Rudy Vallee and Ginger Rogers. Later in the 50s, disc jockey Alan Freed kept the grand movie palace hopping by bringing rock ‘n’ roll to its stage.
