This image was recently re-discovered in our archives when our curators were working on the Herbert Flamm photograph collection. The photo, dated October 21, 1968, shows the Shalimar catering hall on Hylan Boulevard in New Dorp.Even though it became the Excelsior Grand in 1993, the Shalimar lives on in the memories of Staten Island residents.
