I think the “Columbia Hall” in the NY Times article was a different one from the one at Union St. & Fifth Ave. in Park Slope. The “Columbia Hall” with the connection to the cycling groups was over at 1239-41-43 Fulton St. The “Columbia Hall” in Park Slope housed a bowling alley and was a center for bowling enthusiasts.
The online Brooklyn Eagle at the BPL reveals at least six different “Columbia Halls” in the latter half of the 19th c… very confusing!
This was found at the Brooklyn Daily Eagle/Brooklyn Public Library Database thanks to Nemo.
