Jardin de Paris


1514-16 Broadway (44th St.), Roof, New York, NY

In 1895, Oscar Hammerstein opened an entertainment complex for which one fifty-cent ticket admitted you to two main auditoriums (Lyric, Music Hall), two small theatres (Concert Hall, Roof Garden), an Oriental cafe, bowling, and billiards. On June 29, 1898, the debt-laden Olympia was auctioned. The Roof Garden emerged as its own theatre. In 1907, Florenz Ziegfeld became manager, presenting the first five editions of his famous Follies format. Later, it was a movie theatre. It was razed in 1935.
