Fugazy Theatre

The three-story Fugazy Theatre opened in early-1923 at the northwest corner of W. Houston Street and MacDougal Streets. Owned by boxing promoter Humbert Fugazy and designed by the firm of Reilly & Hall, the theatre was built by the O'Day Construction Company at a cost of approximately $275,000.

Presenting moving pictures and vaudeville, the 1,687 seat theatre (1,067 orchestra, 590 balcony, 30 proscenium boxes) was one of Greenwich Village’s most popular but led a short life nevertheless. It closed in 1929, acquired by the city for subway construction. In 1934 the Department of Parks acquired permission to utilize the site, which is now home to the William F. Passannante Ballfield.
