Golden Shell on the southeast side

  • l

Having been an expatriot for the past 10 yrs, I was wondering if this bastion of Gypsy fare (and good old BIG platefulls)and working mans fun was still around. As I remember, It wasn't far from Richard Specks apartment. 107th and Avenue "L", or something like that.

  1. The Golden Shell was at 10063 South Avenue N. It’s now gone (closed sometime in the ‘90s I think). Before it was the Golden Shell it was called the Shipyard Inn and, yes, Richard Speck rented a room there.

    1. The kids of the owners of golden shell own coaches corner on kennedy ave in Hammond [Hessville]. I have never been there but I saw a menu and a few of the shell's menu items are on it. Hope to try it soon and report back.
