Monte Carlo by the Sea Opens!

This undated, unidentified article is likely from around July 1926. (See the ad I found in the Brooklyn newspaper at the bottom of this post)

1926 Monte Carlo by the Sea openingEverybody who is anybody in Yonkers was present at the Monte Carlo last night when 150 social and political lights of upper New York had a dinner there.

Billy Gallagher was in a real good mood with the big crowd present, so he took time to tell us all about his activities.

Sunday night, this week, Billy will open up his new place at Hollands Station, L. I., which will be knokn [sic] as Monte Carlo by the Sea.  It is right by the intersection of the new Cross Bay road and Beach Ninety-second street and Beach Channel, the busiest corner in the resort.

The place is all newly done over and has a seating capacity of 750 and a dance floor space enough for 300 couples.

He will take his whole crew down from the Monte Carlo, New York, which closes for the season this Saturday night.  “Big Tim” Reardon and Walter Gallagher will be in charge.

The entire Ed Hutchison revue, “That’s That,” the Four Diamonds and the Buffalodians Orchestra go down, too, and Billy expects to make it the smartest place on Long Island, as no other resort down there has as pretentious a revue as his.
