Review: New York Post, 05 October 1868.

“The weather does not seem to affect the attendance at Mr. Thomas’s Central Park Garden concerts. The place is so easily accessible, the large concert hall is so comfortable, and the concerts are so much better than any that we have ever before had, that the undiminished attendance is easily accounted for.”

“The Central Park Garden continues on its smooth path of prosperity. Mr. Theodore Thomas’ orchestra was never in better trim. There will be extra gala nights on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.”
