What you see in Sunset Park, Brooklyn: Widdi Hall

"Ex-Palace Theatre (1914) Ex-Center Theatre (ca. 1940) 522-seat theatre closed in 1953"
I got a chance to shoot an event in this hall for Sara Gonzalez, Sunset Park's district city council person. Nice to know the history behind the hall! It has many decorative finishings that, at the time of the event, appeared to be original. Now I know that they were.
The interior is much bigger than it looks here. Equipped with a stage and another large back room -that seems to keep going forever, it is ideal for a large event like a family reunion, live performance, or local talent show. Wouldn't it be great to have a local talent show?
