On The Music
new roadmap of New York Citys 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
Brooklyns former Paramount Movie Theatre, now a part
of the Brooklyn Campus gymnasium and Luntey Commons.
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.
