Interesting Facts
The Hub opened October 27, 1950 on Harlem Avenue in Chicago and was a giant in the roller rink world. The lobby area was almost as big as the rink. Among other things it had a small dance floor and a juke box which attracted the non-skaters to the Hub. Upstairs was a giant Wurlitzer pipe organ, originally played by Leon Berry, known as the dean of roller rink rock. In 1974 the Hub was renamed the Axle and it finally closed on October 31, 1985 being replaced by shopping malls and stores.
