This is the original look of the Idora Park Ballroom, which was constructed in 1910. It was a popular spot for dances and concerts, ranging from big bands to rock ’n’ roll groups. The ballroom was destroyed by a fire in 2001. Later that year, the park’s signature roller coasters — the Wild Cat and Jack Rabbit — were demolished.
