Flushing Town Hall



137-35 Northern Boulevard
Flushing, NY 11354
(718) 463-7700

Home to the Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts, Town Hall features art exhibitions, concerts, educational programs and cultural festivals that often showcase local talent.

The galleries mount four or five exhibitions every year. A permanent exhibit uses documents and artifacts to illustrate the hall's role in the social, political and cultural life during the late 19th century. This gallery is also used for chamber music concerts.

The wood-paneled cafe, its walls laden with photographs of past performers, is home to a fine Thursday-night jazz series of both established and emerging musicians. (Legendary trumpeter Louis Armstrong's home is nearby.)

Built in 1862 in Romanesque Revival style, the hall has served Flushing as an assembly point for Union recruits during the Civil War and as a bank, police precinct, jail, grand ballroom and courthouse. P. T. Barnum ran sideshows from the hall featuring Tom Thumb and other marvels.
