NYC - Brooklyn: Long Island University

Established in 1926, the Brooklyn Campus of Long Island University (LIU) offers 209 degree and certificate programs at the associates, undergraduate, and graduate level. This original LIU campus, at the intersection of Flatbush and De Kalb avenues, includes the former Brooklyn Paramount Theater, the worlds first theater built expressly for talking pictures. The theater, which abuts the original core campus, was bought in 1960 by LIU and converted into a gymnasium in 1963 and its original Wurlitzer organ is used during the Blackbirds' home basketball games.
