Carnegie Hall

Carnegie Hall
Carnegie Hall right across the street here was founded in 1891 by Andrew Carnegie. And in the beginning, it had a much simpler name. It was just called The Music Hall. You can still see that right above the entrance way. There's an old story in New York about a guy that arrives in Central Station on a train. He hops off with a violin in his hand. And he asks a passing woman, "How do I get to Carnegie Hall?" The lady turns around and says, “Practice, darling. Practice." I’m not sure if that fellow ever made his way to Carnegie Hall. But a lot of musicians have over the years, and not just classical ones either, in the likes of Johnny Cash, Pink Floyd, and The Beatles. Actually, The Beatles played their second ever USA concert here in 1964 although Paul McCartney wasn't too happy about it because on the program, they had all The Beatles names correctly except his. Instead of writing Paul McCartney, they wrote John McCartney.
