I am glad it is a church and not a parking lot, like so many others have become.

After the bowling alley in the early 80’s a guy name Vince had a club there called PARK VILLA and later called ON STAGE. The homes to the rt used to be parking for the theater. I used to repair the sound system. The lighting and decor looked like a western version of studio 54. During Park Villa there was a mechanical Bull onstage and when people got drunk and daring they would ride and get throne off! The club ran for several years but after the happyland fire (bronx)the fire and police used to raid it too often. After Onstage closed Vince shortly past away. I had alot of good times working and drinking there. B.W.

I saw this the other day while biking by. It is right near the Paramount, which is under renovation (and the renovators let me go inside and have a look.) This theater has the banner out front that says “Holy Ghost Royal House of Restoration.”

i recall it was also a disco later on. the usual problems associated with a youthful clientel resulted in its demise.

The building now houses a church… so, what ELSE is new?
