Peter is correct about the Arrowhead inn.  From my Book “Northwest Bronx” Thomas X. Casey and Bill Twomey

Ben Riley’s Arrowhead Inn was built on a 17-acre site and opened in April 1924 at 246th Street
and Riverdale Avenue. It was designed by Dwight J. Baum. Ben Riley’s establishment closed in
1941 and was transformed for services by Rabbi Charles E. Shulman of the Riverdale Temple
from 1947 to October 1952. The Briar Oak housing complex was then built on the site, and a
new Riverdale Temple was dedicated on September 17, 1954.  see my postcard image ( there are about 16 )Ben Reiley's Arrowhead Inn
