Sheepshead Bites reports that on Emmons Avenue, what was once a bungalow has been replaced by an ugly piece of shit that will eventually house a restaurant of some sort.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 Rockaways remaining bungalows got the Times treatment in 2003 and again in 2008, and is also the stuff of an in-production documentary. Its a shame to see cottages so closely entwined with the areas history replaced by something this fugly, whatever dining it brings to the area.
If youre looking for a restaurant that nods to bungalow architecture, visit the Bungalow Bar across the bay. Hidden behind a picket fence, its 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 Islands amusements has announced a name for the new park, and its a familiar one: Luna Park. It remains to be seen whether, like at Lunas onetime competitor Steeplechase Park, itll have an attraction wherein puffs of air are blown up your dates skirt while a midget hits you with a paddle.
