pizza-by-bay

Pizza by the Bay, the only kosher pizzeria near Sheepshead Bay Road, has closed for good, with equipment and furnishings up for auction today.

The business owner said that business has been slow, with not much demand for a kosher eatery in the area. Located at 1730 Jerome Avenue, Pizza by the Bay opened just a year ago, replacing Pizza Cardo. That kosher pizzeria replaced Benny’s Gourmet Pizza in 2011, which was also kosher. It appears all three struggled to find the client base in Sheepshead Bay.

News of the closing came by way of an auction announcement made earlier this week, which we were tipped off to by Robert Fernandez. The auction, which is taking place right now, will clear out everything from the shop, from the pizza ovens and refrigerators, to tables, utensils, pots and pans.

As for the owner, he said he’s excited to be moving on to new business opportunities. He was tight-lipped about his plans, but said he’ll keep us posted. We wish him the best of luck.

      There are a whole heck of alot of small businesses going broke in Sheepshead Bay. This is due to the fact that 70% of small businesses in Sheepshead Bay are owned by men. The median profit turned by men in Sheepshead Bay is 40000. At the same time, female owned establishments in Sheepshead Bay turn 80000 in profits. We need to have at least 50% of female small business owners in Sheepshead Bay.
