    Default New Apollo Theater

    The photo below is from the old Apollo Theater thread. If you compare the photo and the rendering, you would see that the 84-year-old Victoria Theater, third building to the East of Apollo, is not in the rendering. I guess it would be demolished if not already.

    Here is a quote from the thread I mentioned:
    Designed by the celebrated theater architect Thomas W. Lamb, the Victoria facade is ornamented with Ionic columns, anthemion leaves, lions' heads, rosettes and rhytons horn-shaped cups with animal heads. The Victoria is not a landmark but has been deemed eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, Mr. Adams [Michael Henry Adams, author of the forthcoming "Harlem Lost and Found, An Architectural and Social History: 1765-1915."] said. "It is the most architecturally distinguished theater to survive in central Harlem," he said. "It shouldn't be necessary to destroy what is special and unique about Harlem."

    That's good they are keeping the original entrance and marquee...otherwise it looks good.
