Fordham Road Eats

I tried posting this on BronxBoard without success. Perhaps I'll be luckier here:

Whatever happened to the Big Burger and Gorman's on Fordham Rd.? Gorman's was great, and I still remember BB as the best burger I've ever had all these years later - which my 85 year old mother concurs with. Both places were always packed at mealtimes. So when(?) did they close and why? Were either or both ever resurrected elsewhere?

On a similar note, I know Jahn's is long gone from the Bronx, but I'd heard that there is still an outpost in Queens or Long Island. True? Anyone been? Same owners?

And finally, are there any places like the above - classics from the 60 & 70s that still exist (not including the wonderful restaurants on Arthur Ave)?

TIA,
Les
