What sits below our city streets? Well, along piano row sits Steinert Hall, an “acoustic marvel” as one has noted. The value of Boston real estate continues upwards, and perhaps — at some point — treasure like Steinert Hall will reap the benefits of restoration and welcome guests again.
The Boston Globe describes Steinert Hall as the following:
a state-of-the-art theater when it was constructed a century ago deep beneath Boylston Street, once attracted some of the world’s finest classical musicians. Long shuttered, it remains largely out of public sight, a ghost figure on the cultural landscape.
The Globe articles includes much more detail on the theater, accompanied by some stunning images. The article is available on the BostonGlobe.com.
