Now it is baught by an interior designerer who is going to work out of it and rebuild it to its natural gothic style. I think it would have been a great tea room or wine tasting place where people can actually go in there for a period of time. I was just there today(10.5.08) and it is boarded up and some windows are broken and others you can't see in, the glass is like a mirror on the outside, then the remaining ones are boarded up. I'll take some pics of it(I live a few blocks away) and try to post them on this site. Its a shame that people would ruin that place(haunted or not)even with graffiti, broken windows, etc. it is still creepy though, even for me who is a paranormal seeker.

I was there last weekend and took a few pictures of the outside of the building. I wanted to have them before this building is destroyed totally. I have read that this building has been around since the 1920s and was used at that time as a speakeasy. Also, I've read that there was a murder there where a girl named Maria was done in and haunts the place. The building, in my opinion, is just so beautiful and needs to be restored. I agree with the poster of 10/5/08 that a tea room or something of that nature would be so appropriate. Still, it would be nice to have a full history on the place like who was the original owner, when did it open, etc and maybe some pictures from way back when. Too much of Long Island is being lost to "new" construction. This building needs to be saved.

Did you get anyone interested in helping restore it? My grandmother had the business there when it was called the Chateau La Boheme 50's until her death in 1961. My stepgrandfather quickly married one of the waitresses there and my family was never welcomed back. She died in a downstairs bedroom in March, 1961. If anyone had reason to haunt that place, it was my grandmother! More to THAT story but not now. It was built in the 20's. Sugar Kavaric (may be misspelled) lived across the street to the right (looking from the family entrance) and I understand her father built it. Her fathers name would be different, as I am sure she was married at some time and she had 2 children, Kristi and Kerry. Sugar had ownership at the time my grandma had the business, leased it but would not sell. I would love to see something done with the place but unfortuantely I dont have the kind of money it would take. If I can be of any help, let me know! I loved that place, lived there at times during my childhood. I used to explore the attic and the tower as well as the basement and find all sorts of things. Although I remember it so well, down to where funiture was placed, I cannot recall how I got into the attic and the tower! Weird only because I was having a recurring dream several years ago and I would climb a staircase and there was a door on the immediate right. (It was definitely not the staircase from the bar.) there were lots of fishtanks in the large area and beyond them I could see a bedroom set up. I tried to go in but something made me feel uneasy and I couldnt do it. After numerous dreams, I finally went further in by the fishtanks but something spooked me and I ran out. I wish I could remember how I got in the attic, then maybe I would know if I was dreaming about the chateau or if it was somewhere in my imagination!
