Former theater and dance hall, site of Malcolm X's assassination (now Mary Woodward Lasker Biomedical Research Building)
Washington Heights and Inwood Online "Audubon Ballroom"
It was originally a vaudeville theater opened by William Fox (yes, as in the Fox Film Corp.), was an important meeting place for the transit worker's union in the Great Depression era, and the location of Malcolm X's death. It has such a rich history in many facets of life, from theater and cultural events to political activity. (April 2007)
