“Notice Is Hereby Given That All my interest in and connection with the business conducted in and upon the premises known as ‘Cremorne Gardens,’ late ‘Palace Garden,’ in the City of New-York, ceased on the first day of May, 1862, and that I am not responsible for any obligations incurred by any one on account thereof. C.V. DE FOREST. Dated New-York, Oct. 9, 1862.”

“The ‘Cremorne’ is no more.”
Review: New York Clipper, 18 October 1862, 215.
“The Cremorne Garden reached its ‘fall of the leaf’ (postage stamps included) on the 6th, when the ‘almost incredible’ Cubas took a benefit at ‘double prices.’ This effort of inflation proved final, especially as the circus pavilion (previously consumptive for several weeks) had already ‘gone off’ in the direction of Baltimore. On the 7th, there was a ‘hiatus deflendus’ of thirty-eight minutes between the two pieces played on the what’d’ye-call-um of music, and the audience went away, after a tune or two from the pagoda, in bad humor. On the 8th, the place seemed left to the poor darkies who ‘wait’ for custom. On the 9th, the concern fell into the arms of the Catholic Church, like a criminal seeking absolution after an Old Bailey conviction or acquittal, and the place was full of church charity. Thus endeth the Cremorne monkey institution for 1862.”
