Charles C. Haight, architect. Theatre situated atop the American Theatre. The open-air roof garden was redesigned (and enclosed) by Thomas W. Lamb, reopening in 1909. After 1912, it was managed by Marcus Loew. In 1929, two years after Loew's death, his corporation left the American. Burlesque followed, until a fire in December of 1930 crippled the venue. In 1932, the entire building was torn down.
