If memory serves me, there was a "Kearny Yacht Club" situated at the bottom of Bergen Ave. in the area of what is now the archery range. It was across from "The Old Soldiers Home" ruins that is now the bunny hill. I'm not sure but it may have also been called "The Barge".

Hope this helps.

O'Hara's was further up Passaic Ave.

Yes, there was a place called the Kearny Yacht Club. It was owned by my grandmother's brother, Jimmy Clark. My grandparents worked part-time there - as did my father when he was going through dental school. From the stories I heard, it was a great place. How do you know of it?

The Kearny Yacht Club was owned by Jimmy Clark, my grandmother's brother. The club was housed in a converted barge. From the stories I've heard, it was a very popular club and some well-know bands got their start there.

After O'Haras burned, it was replaced by Lyles Restaurant
