Rich in music history, NYC building lacks tenants

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - A new owner is seeking tenants for a landmark New York City building where generations of songwriters peddled their wares to music publishers.

The New York Times reports that the Brill Building is now half empty since the closing of the sheet music store Colony Records and a post-production studio.

Real estate investor Eric Hader paid $185 million for the 11-story mid-Manhattan building in February. He tells The Times he believes he can breathe new life into the building by evoking its show business past.

For starters, the Times says Hader is in discussions with the Songwriters Hall of Fame about establishing a small museum in the building.

Famous names associated with the Brill Building include Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington and Carole King.
