Here’s another unfortunate casualty to Hurricane Sandy: signage outside the historic, landmarked Shore Theater in Coney Island. Coneyislandfun tweets, “Damage is extensive and heartbreaking but our focus now is on public safety,” although it’s not clear if they’re talking about the entire neighborhood or the theater itself. (Does anyone know if the building sustained interior damage as well?) Amusing the Zillion also notes the damage, saying: “The sign on the Shore Theater, a New York City landmark which is vacant and for sale, was twisted and appeared to be hanging by a thread. The street was blocked off with caution tape in case it fell.” Here are interior shots of the theater taken this year.

We love this five-bedroom, two-bath triplex in Park Slope, which is both beautiful and expensive. There aren’t any kitchen or bathroom photos, but the listing says it has a “well-appointed galley kitchen.” The double parlor, formal dining room and kitchen are all on the same floor. There are tons of original details, including five decorative […]
This yellow brick corner building at 240 St. Nicholas Avenue has been renovated with reclaimed wood paneling, oak floors, and stainless steel appliances and is for sale for $2,295,000. There is an owner’s duplex — unusual for a multi-family in Bushwick — four rental apartments and a two-car garage. There’s also lots of FAR and […]
