PROSPECT HEIGHTS — The cheesesteak shop that claims to serve the city's only authentic version of the Philly favorite is opening its first Brooklyn location.Broker Adam Malitz offered an interesting quote: "[Shorty's NYC] sought an area that reflected its dedication to authenticity, and the landlord [Pintchik Associates] is committed to cultivating an eclectic tenant mix in this rapidly rising neighborhood."
Shorty's NYC will move into 229 Flatbush Ave. between Bergen and Dean streets in 2016, real estate brokers Lee & Associates NYC LLC announced Tuesday.
Shorty's NYC says its cheesesteaks taste like the real thing because they're made with bread shipped directly from Philadelphia, according to the mini chain's website.
This watchdog blog, by journalist Norman Oder, offers analysis, commentary, and reportage about the $4.9B project to build the Barclays Center arena and 15-16 towers at a crucial site in Brooklyn. Dubbed Atlantic Yards by developer Forest City Ratner in 2003, it was rebranded Pacific Park Brooklyn in 2014 after the Chinese government-owned Greenland Group bought a 70% stake going forward. As of 2018, after the arena and four towers were built, Greenland will own 95% of future construction.
