Gaga Pythian

The Pythian Temple is an historic Knights of Pythias building at 135 West 70th Street between Columbus Avenue and Broadway in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. It was built in 1927 to serve as a meeting place for the 120 Pythian lodges of New York City.

The Knights of Pythias is a fraternal organization. and secret society founded at Washington, DC, on 19 February 1864. FD Roosevelt was initiated during his presidency.

The Pythians departed the temple in 1958, leaving behind halberds, staffs, magic wands, coffins with skeletons, lanterns, thrones and Egyptian garb, The Times reported.

This would become baby Gaga’s childhood home in this former secret society temple.

Christopher Gray, writing in the NY Times called it ‘an improbable cradle of rock music’. But he was not referring to the Gaga residence.

He was talking about the fact that Decca Records rented space from the Pythians to create a renowned recording studio.

In 1954, Bill Haley and His Comets recorded “Rock Around the Clock” there, and Buddy Holly, Sammy Davis Jr., Billie Holiday and others are also said to have used the studio.

All very strange..

In 2006, the girder cross was removed to St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church on 22 Barclay Street, in Manhattan. While there, the girder set was further modified and trimmed to look more like the Latin cross of Christian tradition.
