In what may very well be the first business from our area to make an offer on Groupon, Têtê-à-Têtê Café (2601 East 14th Street) is selling $15 gift cards for $7 for today only.

For those who don’t know what Groupon is, the service e-mails daily deals to restaurants, cafes, retail shops and services in the New York City area. You pay a discounted price – usually about half – for a gift certificate to the establishment.

But this isn’t an ad for Groupon. Or Têtê-à-Têtê Café. I’m just letting you know about a good deal to save some money and support a local business. Check it out!

After all the whining we’ve done about the blizzard and its paralyzing effect on lives and businesses, there’s one great thing to be thankful for: an overstock of lobsters at neighborhood staple Jordan’s Lobster Dock (3165 Harkness Avenue).

The business is now home to 5,000 pounds of the delicious crustacean, after sales were crippled by the snowstorm. Now they’re looking to get rid of the inventory – at cost – for the first time in the 40-year history.

“We run a seafood lobster market NOT an aquarium,” Manager Captain John Olsson is quoted on the business’ website.

According to Grub Street, where we first heard about this awesome deal, a one-and-a-quarter-pound lobster can be picked up for $12, and larger ones are selling at $6.99 per pound. The at-cost deal lasts until the end of the month

Well, this is one Jew that can’t wait for his treif dinner!

I don’t always get to tell you about the Brownstoner’s top sales listings, but this one is a must!

A Breakers condo made number three on the top-selling real estate list on the Brownstoner, last week.

3112 Emmons Avenue, Unit 1
Condo plus parking spot in The Breakers development. Entered into contract on 8/6/08; closed on 2/11/09; deed recorded on 2/25/09.

Sheepshead Bay’s waterfront property, The Breakers, has sold one unit for close to $1.5 million. The unit is identified as Unit 1, but information on PropertyShark doesn’t allow for detailed information on individual condos. Based on information at Wilk Real Estate‘s website, the unit is probably 2 or more bedrooms.

You can check out Ned’s article from last summer about the Stolen View from The Breakers.

Is that Ikea furniture in the model apartment?

Okay, friends. It’s official. We’re living in the shadow of something amazing. It seems that a single-family property in Manhattan Beach has sold for $3,050,000.00. This normally might not garner our attention, except that in this market where home prices are dropping and, supposedly, no one is buying, this particular property has increased in value in astronomical fashion.

Information from, a website that seems to truly know “Brooklyn inside and out”, compared this to other home sales in Brooklyn. The Brownstoners say that the 150 Hastings Street property last sold in 2005 for $800,000. This is where my mind blanks out.

So, to help me out, a link is provided to another website, Property Shark, where I was able to log on and see the details regarding the property. This site is very informative, providing links to the NYPD statistics, amongst other useful data. But, one of the things the site failed to tell me was who bought the property, how they were able to offer so much, and why! It sounds like we need the Real Estalker to help us figure out if we have a real celebrity living amongst us.

What did the property look like in 2005 and is there where Lam Sai-Wing’s gold and diamond-encrusted bathroom fixtures went when they were auctioned off this past July? Well, that’s the only thing that could justify the huge difference in selling cost from then to now.

UPDATE: Massey Knakal’s Brian Hanson has told Sheepshead Bites that the buyer of the Courier Life building is a local investor and developer who has not yet decided what will be done with the building. “The new owner will look for the best way to lease the building,” he says. “Whether he will divide it into multiple spaces or leave it as one depends on the interest he receives from tenants.”

Hanson has also informed us that Courier Life is required to leave the building by Spring 2009, but acknowledges that the new owner will be flexible and allow them extra time if the company takes longer to secure a new office. That may not be necessary, though, as a source within Courier Life told Sheepshead Bites that the company will likely move shortly after the New Year.

The Courier Life building, home of the Bay News, has sold for $3.1 million after almost 11 months on the market. Courier Life has not announced the location of its new site, but rumors suggest it will be in downtown Brooklyn in the vicinity of the Metro Tech center, near Jay Street and Willoughby Street. Some, if not all, employees remain in the dark about when and where they will move.

The broker, Brian Hanson, director of sales for Massey Knakal Realty Services, says the deal closed last week, signaling that an end is near to the storied paper’s longtime presence in the Bay area. Located at 1733 Sheepshead Bay Road, the building went on sale last November as its owner, News Corporation, sought to consolidate all of its recently acquired New York local papers in one location. According to a Brooklyn View article, Courier Life’s lease was set to expire this summer.
