One of the most beloved and recognizable icons of New York City is finally shutting down, it seems. The world famous Roseland Ballroom is being closed in April 2014 after almost a century’s worth of providing entertainment to the masses.
Opening in New York City in 1919, the Roseland Ballroom was the brainchild of Louis Brecker and its fame as “the home of refined dancing”, as it was affectionately referred to, soon grew to immense proportions. In the 1920s, it was one of the biggest dance halls of all time and might have been the birthplace of the marathon dancing craze. Later on, the site became even bigger and better in the 1940s.
Famous stars of the day performed there such as Louis Armstrong, Count Basie with his Roseland Shuffle and Glenn Miller. The ballroom became so popular; radio networks such as NBC began playing big band performances.
In 1956, the famous 51st and Broadway location was torn down and quickly rebuilt in 52 street, where it pride itself on ballroom dancing as well as roller skating, a new attraction.
After Brecker’s death in 1981, Disco Nights soon began in order to capitalize on a fast and fleeted trend. In the 1990s, the venue became a popular place for rock and rollers to perform. Be sure to see this piece of history before it’s gone forever.
