Description

Big Ben Food Market, South Street, Oyster Bay NY. The building opened in 1924 as an Oddfellows Temple, before serving as overflow classroom space for the Oyster Bay School District. Later, a rollerskating rink operated here, until the market opened in 1937. The building was eventually sold to Oyster Bay Fire Company No. 1 when the 1895 firehouse was ruled to be beyond repair.
