CARNEGIE HALL, New York City

 

 

Carnegie Hall is a concert hall located at the southeast corner of Seventh Avenue and 57th Street, two blocks south of Central Park, in New York City. It is one of the most significant venues for classical as well as popular music in the United States

Opened in 1891, this historical structure is known not just for its beauty and history but also for its fine acoustics.

 

 

 

Rumor is that a pedestrian on Fifty-seventh Street, Manhattan, stopped Jascha Heifetz and inquired,

- "Could you tell me how to get to Carnegie Hall?"

- "Yes," said Heifetz. "Practice!"




This old joke has become part of the folklore of the hall, but its origins remain a mystery.

 

According to The New York Times, the main player in the story has been described at
various times as either an unnamed man, violinist Jascha Heifetz or the pianist Arthur Rubinstein.
