I am wrong in my post from 2009. The theater would be in what is now the field next to the new building that houses a school. P.S. 179 is what is was called when I was a kid, then it was home to West Side High School.

That always bugged me too. I think I can see it from my apartment over there in Jersey. Why “Showboat”? I know it’s by the river but there is nothing showboatesque about it.

I am wrong again, I actually can see the multiplex that put the Showboat out of business. The Showboat is now a Trader Joe’s. It shared the parking lot with a restaurant on a retired ferry boat, The Binghampton. The restaurant closed and the Binghampton is half sunk and it looks as if it is collapsing.
