The Brooklyn Paramount Organ at LIU   2008-03-17

 

This is another historic organ concert, this time on the Brooklyn Campus of Long Island University on DeKalb Ave. downtown.   This was a theater built in 1928, later acquired by Long Island University along with the attached building, and this was the first building that became LIU's Brooklyn Campus.   The theater became the school's basketball court but much of the architectural elements and the original 1928 Wurlitzer organ remained.   A concert using the recently restored organ was held on Sunday.
