With all do respect, applebees sucks...

If you want diner styled food people go to Opera, where china max used to be. And if you want a bar setting with games on and good food, without any applebees commercial crap, Wheelers on sheepshead bay road hits the spot!

The 7/11 on sheepshead bay rd was open for such a short amount of time, that nobody even noticed it opened or closed.

Been living in Sheepshead bay for over 20+ years, I know it changed a lot and it's still changing as we speak. I love the neighborhood and know it like the back of my hand, but still sometimes desire something a bit more peaceful.

I saw TV commercials for this and me and my wife are interested in trying it. Thanks for this feedback. China max was great, So was Siam Orchid when it was there. Wheeler's food has been great for years.

There Wolf Cave further Emmonds up also. Not sure how good they are. That site has seen a few restaurants. There was a Japanese place there for good while years ago.

In Manhattan, much of Brooklyn, and parts of Queens like Long Island City, a 300-foot tower isn’t even news. But out in the once-sleepy waterfront community of Sheepshead Bay, it’s sure to get people talking.

I'm all for something being built over that swath of land on Voorhies...that particular block is very depressing.
But this tower is really a bit much.

The Tower being built at the old site of El Greco is going up fast too. There will be more of these dominating the landscape there in the future i think.

I believe this is an as-of-right development. Plus its right near a subway and just like the other poster said, that particular block is abandoned/depressing. I am not opposed to these TOD developments. Honestly, large swaths of Sheapsheadbay Rd need some new construction. I am still surprised there are not any tall towers near Kings Highway stop yet.
