Infobox[edit]

The {{Infobox NRHP}} currently used in this article is not suitable because the building is not listed on the National Register of Historic Places. {{Infobox building}} would be a better alternative. ​​​​​​​​Niagara ​​Don't give up the ship 19:04, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

I believe it's being used for convenience, since it's easy with the NRHP template to add the NYC landmark fields, which would not be possible with the building template. Aside from that, it's often the case the NYC landmarks become listed on the NRHP some years later -- not always, but often enough. Beyond My Ken (talk) 20:59, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
Actually, it is possible to add the NYC landmark fields to an Infobox building using {{Designation list}}. It probably not a good to wait until it is listed on the NRHP because it is currently in a hidden, maintenance category caused by the absence of the NRHP reference number. So, it is entirely possible that another editor would attempt to try and fix the problem. ​​​​​​​​Niagara ​​Don't give up the ship 21:26, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
If you know how to switch it to the building template and keep the NYC landmark designation, give it a try. Beyond My Ken (talk) 21:49, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
I re-added the NHRP box and left open the spots in case it does get added. Any concerns/complaints? FriarTuck1981 (talk) 22:34, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
Use of the NRHP infobox has some side effects, one of which is adding it to various error categories, such as NRHP infobox needing cleanup if there is no NRHP reference number. I replaced the infobox with a designation list box. Generic1139 (talk) 20:47, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

Theater dismantling?[edit]

When the theater in the building was dismantled, what was that space converted to? A 3000+ seat theater isn't exactly a small venue. --RThompson82 (talk) 04:15, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
