We've filled our quota of Mill Basin stories, but not so Sheepshead Bay or Gerritsen Beach, two other bastions of Brooklyn waterfront living to the east of Coney Island and Brighton Beach. A blog called GerritsenBeach.net has been tracking the progress of the Riviera Suites in a far off part of Sheepshead Bay. And the image above shows the outposts of the Brooklyn Riviera Empire being built by SSJ Development, which is also building in Gerritsen Beach, Bergen Beach, Mill Basin and Bensonhurst. Us, we think the Bensonhurst Riviera is going to rock.
