This was Worlds End’s New York office from the late 90’s to the early 2000’s
I always wanted to have an office in that building because years earlier it had been an epicenter for the New York music business.
It was the home of Aldon Music formed by Don Kirshner and Al Nevins. They had amazing writers signed to them.
Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Neil Sedaka, Howard Greenfield, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil. The building was also home to Bert Berns, his entire meteoric seven year run until his death happened there.
Also working out of 1650 Broadway back in the day was Chip Taylor, Aaron Schroeder, Scepter Records, Buddah Records, Bang Records, Bell Records and Allegro Sound studios.
Mancunian and New York transplant Paul Adams worked for Worlds End’s NYC office and for a time Ex Atlantic A&R man and now Publishing Superstar Rich Christina worked out of the Worlds End office.
