Though the city of Brooklyn a popumt oo of nearly a quarter of a million of Inhabitants, and ranks tht third in the fnion, It Is a remarkable fact that its citizens have been compelled to depend upon the metropolis for all tbe popular and fashionable amusements they ea>oy. There arc few or no placet of rccreatloa. Kotertaiamenta on a large scale for charitable purposes have sought m vtln lor accommodation. The rhetorical exhibitions of its literary institutions have never found room to scat a moiety of those who would attend then 8octelle* of various kinds have likewise called for eomu public hall adapted to their purpose*, whll# tbe Philharmonic Society of Brooklyn, which has ob Ulned s Just rep-itation throughout the country for tbe musical taste and talent embraced to the organisation, has never found wlocale adequate to accommodate the immense audiences that are drawn together by its en tertaining concert*. In view of this great desideratum, a committee of three geotemen, rlz Messrs l uther B Wyman, A. Cooke Hull and R. R Raymond, waa appointed by tbe Philharmonic Society of Brook iyn, to take the subject into consideration, an* in Cetober, 1851, a meeting of tbe citizens was held In the Polytechnic Institute "to dories measures to ereot a large and tollable hall la Brooklyn for musical aad other purposes."
