It is funny you should ask that question.  Someone that visited the website recently sent the following:

my great grandmother moved into Kingsbridge in 1895. Eventually moving into 3805 Review place. My grandfather ran a speakeasy during prohibition where Tremont Paint store is now located. My aunt was in the first graduation class of St. John’s with my dad and his other siblings to follow. I grew up in 185 West 238th St. my parents moved into the building in 1949.

I really have no information on a speakeasy at this location but Tremont Paint Supply spans the Fuhrman’s Dry Goods building and the building next-door.
