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!

  2. Thanks for the edification. Tried Googling the address with the name and nothing else came up. Thanks for the Brooklyn Eagle database tip as well. What is that link?

  3. Great photos. I love the names they came up with – you just know that the Lillianette cigars were named for some wife or daughter of the cigar guy.
