Comments: I love reading about the history of Yonkers and the time period. My father to me that my Great-grandfather Henry Ludwig Meyers played his violin in an orchestra at the hall. He and his family lived on Herriot St. and also ran a saloon. I enjoy reading the newspaper clippings. They give you an in-depth look at activities and dressings to events.
How did you hear about this site? I was curious about my Great-grandfather's background. I was told that he played his violin on ships traveling to Germany and back to New York. Thank you so much!

Comments: Absolutely increidble site. I had taken some pictures of Tetonia Hall as I was fascinated by it. I always thought it was a "German Opera House." It's fate was just voted on-I think it's facade will be the front of a giant apartment complex.

Comments: wonderful job of resurrecting this great piece of history. I lived on Hudson st. in the 40's and 50's. I often wondered who lived in those big old houses on bva...they were boarding houses when I lived there..but remember going into the Hall with parents who stopped for some beer. It seemed to be open to the public and had a really wonderful juke box. thanks for your work!

Comments: I love your website! I'm researching my family genealogy where my great-grandfather was a violinist and performed with others at the hall. Henry Meyer ran Meyer's Bar (or Tavern?) on a corner of Herriot St. On 1905 New York State Census he is listed as being a Hotelkeeper. Your photos and news stories help me obtain insight as to what the social lives were like. I almost forgot that my grandfather as a 16 yr. old worked at the sugar factory going to Cuba often. Research is fun and your website inspires me. Thank you.

Comments: What a magnificent website! I was born and grew up in southwest Yonkers, in some one of the grittier neighborhoods. As a boy, I realized that Yonkers did have an illustrious past. I attended the old School 3 on Hamiltion Avenue, Hawthorne Middle School, the old Saunders High School, and the "new Yonkers High School. Many times, I walked past the derelict Teutonia Hall and wondered about it, or the old Trolley house at the end of Buena Vista Ave. At one point in the early seventies, my family and I lived at 584 N. Broadway, while my father was the resident caretaker of the Greystone Jewish Center. We lived in a spacious apartment in a magnificent old mansion on the premises, I only wish I knew more of its history. There was another grand old mansion next door, also on the property, which was used as a Hebrew School. I recall that it had a grand ballroom, and a beautiful, winding staircase of mahogany. It burned down around 1972 or so. Thank you for all of your work on this excellent website!
