Review: New York Clipper, 25 June 1870, 94.

“…After a series of ups and downs, the Tammany closed its doors as a place of amusement on Saturday evening, June 18th, and hereafter the establishment will be devoted to other purposes. As a matter of record, we herewith present a summary of the performances given at the Tammany, from the time it was first thrown open to the public until its close: [provides summary beginning with January 1869 and continues monthly].”

“In a different paragraph: “Jerry Cohn, Irish vocalist, dancer and mimic, opened at Tammany on the 13th and remained during the week. Although a little timid at first, he gradually warmed up to his work and met with considerable applause.”

In a different paragraph: “There was a six hundred dollar house at Tammany on Friday evening, 17th inst., on the occasion of Tom Allen’s benefit.”

Announcement: New York Clipper, 09 July 1870, 110.

The Tammany, we are told, is to be fitted up as an armory, having been rented to the state.”
