This was not the original ballroom at Idora Park, the original ballroom was quickly outgrown and became the roller rink, then the Heidelburg Gardens and ended it's days as the Crazy Horse Saloon. The ballroom pictured in the photo's is a smaller version of the ballroom at Coney Island. The Idora ballroom had the largest dance floor of any ballroom between New York and Chicago.
