In the 1930's there was a restaurant/nightclub named Donahue's that had a nautical theme located on Route 29. When Donahue's burned down, it was replaced by Flagship 29, which was a nightclub built in the shape of a ship which opened in 1938. It was located on Route 29 which was what is now the east bound lanes of Route 22.
It burned down in 1942 and was rebuilt after WWII reopening again as a nightclub. In the 1960's the ship was used as an American Shops clothing store and a dinner theater in 1968. It was rebuilt in 1986 and has been used as various appliance stores ever since.
Jean Sheperd, famous for his radio shows and narrating "A Christmas Story" produced a short film for PBS about Route 22 and highlighted the Union section including the Flagship. The clip can be seen on youtube.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rke5xFNO0og
