Music History Spaces: The Brill Building

I just happened to be walking past the famous Brill Building the other night and I decided to snap a photo of it but despite my trying, I was unable to get one without someone passing right by me. It’s a single shot I must admit, but its one that still helps you reflect upon the amazing amount of music that came out of this building. For decades this was a veritable song factory that found legends such as Carole King and Neil Diamond working day in and day out to churn out the hits that Don Kirshner would ask them to provide.

To the best of my recollection I have never been inside the Brill Building so I don’t know if there are any other plaques or statuary to its history. Perhaps that is a mission I can undertake for the blog if I put my most charming self in front of me when walking past their doors. If I do that I promise to share it with you here for sure.
