The Brill Building in New York City, built in 1930-31, is a classic of Art Deco style and one of the city's architectural icons. For an eighty-year period when an American music industry was establishing worldwide dominance, it served as one of the preeminent music-publishing houses of Manhattan. This survey details the architectural and musical history of the building, the composers, and the musicians associated with the building during its heyday. In its early days, many of the most popular big bands bought songs from Brill publishers and advanced these songs to the Hit Parade, the music ranking system that originated in the 1930s. In the 1950s and 1960s the Brill Building became a centre for songwriter-producer teams. The style that emerged became known as the 'Brill Building Sound'. Many leading musicians in the 1960s and 1970s were located at the Brill Building, including Burt Bacharach, Neil Diamond, Carole King and Paul Simon.
