Dylan used to perform in the theater and the lobby here.

In his book Chronicles, Volume I, Dylan recounts an encounter with professional wrestler Gorgeous George as he played piano in the lobby:

"He winked and seemed to mouth the phrase, 'You're making it come alive.' I never forgot it. It was all the recognition and encouragement I would need for years."

Moral: Be nice to kids.
