Riviera Suites at Sheepshead Bay..errr Gerritsen Beach?

The Bay Club is officially no more. It is now named Riviera Suites.

From the conceptual drawing it looks like it could fit in the neighborhood. Its not a huge structure. It looks a little taller than what the Bay Club was. I can also see a Boat Yard/Dock. If that dock […]

That could be bad for whoever did the work.

Update #1: They have the permits. Link to DOB
