Rybak will build a 22 story tower right next to Asser Levy Park!

Real Deal Excerpts -

Rybak buys Chaim Miller’s Brighton Beach site, plans 22-story tower

Sergey Rybak picked up a troubled Brighton Beach development site once owned by Chaim Miller and plans to build a 22-story apartment building.

Rybak TRData LogoTINY closed on the purchase of 271 Sea Breeze Avenue on June 7 for $13.5 million, six months after buying the defaulted debt on the development site. GFI Realty’s Erik Yankelovich and Yosef Katz brokered the January deal.

“As the marketplace becomes more competitive it is important to fight for the right location!” Rybak said in a statement.

The planned tower will include 114 apartments, 32,000 square feet of community space and 200 parking spots.

In January 2016, Rybak filed plans for a $77 million condo project on the site of the former El Greco Diner in nearby Sheepshead Bay. It’s the priciest condo offering to ever hit the neighborhood, which developers are increasingly targeting due to relatively inexpensive land prices.

Feltman's of Coney Island Returns!

Brooklyn Paper excerpt -

Feltman’s of Coney Island has returned to the People’s Playground, where the restaurant’s founder invented the hot dog 150 years ago. Hot dog aficionados trekked from across the borough and the city to sink their teeth into a frank from Feltman’s of Coney Island at the Surf Avenue restaurant’s grand opening on May 29. And it easily beat Nathan’s Famous for flavor, said one Feltman’s fan.

Sheepshead Bay Waterfront Restuarants

Eater NY excerpt - 

Waterfront Restaurants in NYC to Feel Like You're Outside the City

As if that weren’t enough, there’s another lobster pound in nearby Sheepshead Bay, but so obscurely located you better keep your GPS firmly in hand. Jordan’s Lobster Dock is on Shellbank Creek, where the city’s last remaining lobster boats are berthed. The restaurant has turned toward fried fast food in the last decade, but still has a lighthouse attached and stands next to a statue in a yellow slicker commemorating lobstermen (and perhaps today, lobsterwomen). In addition to lobster rolls, it’s a good place for raw clams and oysters. 3165 Harkness Avenue

Even more amazing, and only a couple of blocks away, nestled right at a turn on the Belt Parkway, stands Clemente’s Maryland Crab House. It, too, has a waterside wooden deck with a view of pleasure boats at their moorings. The thing to get is a bucket of fresh blue crabs steamed in Old Bay. Along with it comes a wooden mallet and plastic bib. The waitresses — dressed in hot pants — will be glad to show you how to get at the crabmeat. But skip the truly awful cocktails, which come in neon colors.3939 Emmons Avenue

On Sheepshead Bay proper, a few blocks from Maryland Crab House, find a number of restaurants evoking the seafood cuisines of other countries, and decorated to match. You can’t go wrong at Liman (2710 Emmons Avenue) — a Turkish restaurant right on the water — with a roasted sea bass or mess of fried fresh anchovies, best eaten on the screened-in porch. Seven blocks further west find Yiasou an elegant Greek seafood spot where a whole flame-roasted flounder, enough for two or three people and likely locally caught, will set you back $30. And don’t miss the fried mullets or grilled octopus, either. 2003 Emmons Avenue

If your interest in seafood is more Italian, old timer Randazzo’s Clam Bar dates to 1964, when Sheepshead Bay offered a dozen such establishments. Order anything with clams, including fried clams, baked stuffed clams, spaghetti with white or red clam sauce, and, of course, New England or Manhattan clam chowder. Most Sicilian of all are the zuppas, which can be eaten in traditional style with ship’s biscuits. Look for the neon lobster thrust skyward. 2710 Emmons Avenue
