Astoria Lanes definitely occupied that space. I remember as a kid in the mid sixties If you were twelve and under on Wednesday mornings during the summer you got three games, rental shoes, a hot dog and a coke for $1.30. How times have changed.

Just to correct “Lost Memories” post of Dec. 16 2006. Steinway Ave. is now Steinway Street, which is the street the marque is on, and 30th Ave is the cross street, which was previously known as Grand Ave. The subway stop on the elevated line is still referred to as Grand Ave. By the way, when I graduated junior high school in 1968 the commencement exercises were held at the Astoria Theater.
