Vauxhall Garden Theatre

Bowery and Broadway, New York, NY

Located in the Vauxhall pleasure garden on land owned by John Jacob Astor. In the summer of 1838, a saloon was built to present comic operas to a fashionable audience. Later managers added other entertainments to the bill. By the 1850s, the once-fashionable retreat area had come to house a rowdy Bowery crowd and the saloon (among other buildings) was demolished in 1855.

Built: 1826     Demolished: 1855
