In the meantime, Bay Ridge resident are waxing nostalgic for the days when their neighborhood was the center of the disco universe: "Our parents were rock and roll Beatles. We enjoyed that," Mary Bennett, a Saturday Night Fever extra, told Newsday. "But now we had disco. It was our own thing. And what a thing it was. It made you feel free." The dance floor, with its 300 pulsating lights, will not be free; opening bids begin at approximately $60,000.
