Correction to note about Academy of Music in per.00224

Archive user Sarah Gentile pointed out that our identification of the Academy of Music mentioned in Whitman's "Brooklyniana, No. 8" ( was incorrect. Previously, we identified the Academy of Music as the New York Academy of Music, but Whitman's reference is actually to the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The new annotation reflecting this information was developed by Sarah in collaboration with Whitman Archive journalism editor Jason Stacy and Ed Folsom. The annotation has been updated on the Whitman Archive.
