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.

    If that guy up behind the elk would have turned just a little to the right…….

    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.
