Gina, The Big Bow Wow was on Cross Bay Blvd in Howard Beach.. It was a few blocks before the Cross Bay Bridge on the right hand side.. You can see a picture of the Big Bow Wow in the "Photos" section of this site.
The Big Bow Wow was the best place to go when I was younger... It was big and had a big arcade... HB needs something like that again... for a while there was Q-Zar but it wasn't the same. It was located in HB not the channel.
The roast beef sandwiches were the best. I could have lived on them. Oh great, Now I am starving for a RB sandwich.
I was at the BowWow the day they opened...the first think I had was the roast beef sandwich...and it always was my favorite. I remember, it was 65 cents at that time.
I had a boat for many years at Cliffs, and we'd go down shellbanl basin and dock somewhere near the BowWow, run across crossbay, and get lunch.
It was a great place....I've been away from Queens since 1976, but still miss those roast beef sandwiches.
Does anyone remember when the big bow wow and the rides opened and closed in HB? Someone on the HavenZone forum asked the question and I am trying to find the answer for him. Thanks
