I Could have Danced (or watched a movie) All Night

My camera's on the floor, its lens packing in the great expanse of the third-floor ballroom/movie theater of The Harmony Club. Under renovation for the past decade, the century-old building on Water Avenue once served as a Jewish social club but now is owned by architectural consultant David Hurlbut who calls it home. The building was on tour during StreetFest last week, so I'll share more photos of this historic treasure later! 
Meanwhile, head on over to The New York Times to read an article about this house in its Dec. 8, 2010 Home and Garden section.

Looks like it just needs a bit of cleaning up and then ready to use today. I remembered when you posted the outside. Thats a neat building, inside and out. Neat to be able to tour it.

I checked out the NYT article and looked at the pictures. Very cool!

Bravo for that shot! I love old theaters. I'm glad yours is being lovingly saved.

Well, it's really a ballroom, but the owner sometimes uses it for movies.
