Seriously! They Fixed it…

As previously posted with “Seriously? Fix it!” SSJ Development finally repaired their plywood fence today.

Now if they could just throw some paint over all of the graffiti that would be great.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if ssj walked away from the whole thing. Didn’t their sign say the “suites” were selling for $599,000. Who would pay that amount to overlook a filthy inlet that is a block away from a sewage treatment plant? How do you say fuhgedaboutit in Russian?

    Well said Bagels!

    At least they fixed the fence.
    I have to admit I was surprised they did it so quickly.
    At E. 17th St and ave. Z they built “luxury condominiums” where a gas station and a auto repair shop and overlooked a parking lot. Some people would buy anything to own a piece of real estate, even one next to the shit factory.

    wow, look at that. bagels is on GB.net again with his negative anti GB rants. Do you stare at the screen all day waiting for a new post by GB.net? Then BAM! Negative comment. What else do you do with your life? To be fair, I hope ssj and this development crumbles and dies, and this POS Jemal packs up and crawls back under the rock from which he came. But this guy bagels does nothing but comment negatively on everything. Must be a joy to be around.

    You too sound like a joy to be around.

    I don’t get any of your comments. Granted I’m considered a newbie to GB. But I love it here and want to see new developement. Why is no developement better then new homes going up? Please explain. I get that no one likes SSJ, but they did come and fix the fense, RIGHT?
    Then you write they should at least paint over the graffiti. Why? so the kids can come and do it again? Come on, that lot is an eye sore. Something needs to be built there.

    When I’m getting company I hate that they have to go down Knapp Street from the Belt Parkway. What a mess. A water treatment plant, garbage trucks, and filth.
    I think GB is better then that and I don’t understand why you don’t feel the same.

      I agree with what you’re saying about the place being an eysore. It just boggles the mind that someone would put down that amount of money to live there. If ssj backs out it would be nice to have Green Streets step in and work their magic to beautify that corner.

      I for one am not against new development if it’s done with the best interest of the community. If someone wants to come in and by a piece of property and built his house on it, be my guest. What I’m against is construction companies buying parcels a land and building houses completely inappropriate for the surrounding area. Sole purpose in mind is to build as many units in as small a space as possible. A good example is on Ocean Avenue between Avenue U and avenue T. Developers bought two-family homes, knock them down, and constructed six-story condominiums within inches of the adjacent two-family homes. This is irresponsible and degrading to the neighborhood. After they complete construction they sell the units and move on to the next neighborhood, hence no stake in the community. If it wasn’t for the GB Association, who knows what kind to shape the Beach would be in today.

      I agree with just about everything Tiggergirl wrote – however, I just don’t appreciate the stunt they pulled with trying to censor GB.net. I also agree that new development can change the nature and atmosphere of a community, but in this case that particular slice of land would be much better off with the new waterfront suites.

    The development will be finished and (from what i understand) most of the units are allready spoken for…but has anyone addressed the impact that several hundred (or about) people will do (yes good for the merchants) but what about those extra cars, and traffic, and schools that have to teach the kids and etc, etc

    • Anonymous

      It’s an 18 unit building, assuming 3 people per unit (which it won’t be) that’s 54. Plus maintenance – lets say another 20. How is that hundreds of people?

  • N.F.H.

    ok right, i thought it was 34 unit, times (4) approx(people), at any rate it will put a strain on traffic, parking, and the school….no?

  • N.F.H.

    and i do thank you for the correction, i grew up in G.B. in the 60’s and there used to be plenty of empty space (not any more) and lots that weren’t being used… it really dosen’t need any more development.

      N.F.H Remember all the double and triple connected lots that allowed you to “cut” through, court to court? May of them were so far below street level that in the summer, when the weeds were tall, you completely disappeared from the street when you went through. Alot of them were big enough for kids to play in too. Wifffle ball, Johnny on the Pony etc. That was when GB was a fun place to be a kid. Now they have so few places to ‘hang out”, and they are hounded in the places they do have. I guess that it raised our property values to have these “eyesores” developed, but that old Gerrittsen Beach that we so fondly remember will never exist again. Knapp st. and Lacon court are just final nails.
