☞ REVIVE:Developer Purchases Hamilton Theater

The Real Deal reports that a known developer has purchased the Hamilton Theater in West Harlem along with an adjacent properties for $19 million.  A dollar store recently moved out of the space at this corner of West 146th within the Broadway corridor in the past month and rumors have it that the lower level will be renovated. This theater was finished in 1913 and is an official New York City Landmark so let hope the new investor fixes up some details such as the missing cornice and the street level entrances to match its former glory. West Harlem appears to be the next happening place uptown these days since it is one of the more under developed sections of Harlem.  Check out more on the story in the Real Deal: LINK

  1. Great news and good to hear it is a NYC Landmark and rightly so. This could be something very creative. Love those huge windows.

  2. Hooray! That's exactly what this neighborhood needs. How do we encourage more of this?
