Elks Lodge No. 878

September 23rd, 2012



With its swimming pool, gym, Aztec-themed theater, banquet hall, bars, and bowling alleys, Lodge No. 878 was once a "social nexus" of Queens. Over the years, it has adapted to the changing times and fading fortunes of the Elks, hosting Extreme Championship Wrestling matches for a while, and currently housing the New Life Fellowship Church (led by the irrepressible Pete Scazzero). Check out this page for some fantastic photos of the interior.

    Thanks for the link, Matt, I didn’t know the interior was that beautiful. I often pass by this building when I go to my sister’s place which is just a couple of blocks away.
