If you love Jaws(and who the hell doesn’t?!) and you ever find yourself in Staten Island, be sure to make a pit stop at the restaurant 494 Chicken, located on 3785 Victory Blvd. As reported by SiLive.com this week, 494 Chicken is the unlikely current resting place for the original shark prop that was used for Universal’s now-defunct Jaws ride back in 1990!
The 13-foot replica of the movie’s shark now hangs high above a set of tables in the restaurant, making it a desired seating location for the fans who will surely be coming through.
“We’re just really big ‘Jaws’ fans,” owner John Ryan told the site. “Someone advertised that they had the original ‘Jaws’ model and I knew I had to see it to believe it.”
He added, “It was a lot of work [getting it inside], but it actually inspired us to bring our collection to the restaurant. We’re in the process of making our own little ‘Jaws’ area.”
