Sheepshead Bay Gets ‘Fugly’ Restaurant Space (We’ll Be at the Bungalow Bar)

Sheepshead Bay Gets ‘Fugly’ Restaurant Space (We’ll Be at the Bungalow Bar)

Sheepshead Bites reports that on Emmons Avenue, what was once a bungalow has been replaced by “an ugly piece of shit” that will eventually house a restaurant of some sort. This is a subject close to our heart — across the bay, the fate of Rockaway’s remaining bungalows got the Times treatment in 2003 and again in 2008, and is also the stuff of an in-production documentary. It’s a shame to see cottages so closely entwined with the area’s history replaced by something this “fugly,” whatever dining it brings to the area.

If you’re looking for a restaurant that nods to bungalow architecture, visit the Bungalow Bar across the bay. Hidden behind a picket fence, it’s got a cabin vibe complete with fireplace, Skee-Ball, dart boards (bring your own darts), and a big deck overlooking Jamaica Bay. Oh! Elsewhere in the area, the Italian developer of Coney Island’s amusements has announced a name for the new park, and it’s a familiar one: Luna Park. It remains to be seen whether, like at Luna’s onetime competitor Steeplechase Park, it’ll have an attraction wherein puffs of air are blown up your date’s skirt while a midget hits you with a paddle.
