The Kings Bay YM YWHA, has announced its expansion to a new location at 2801 Emmons Avenue, between East 28th and East 29th Streets.
The brand new 6,000 sq ft space with an additional 2,000 sq ft private backyard and playground will house some of Kings Bay Y’s senior programs, as well as some children’s programs.
“We were simply running out of room in our main building on Nostrand Avenue,” said Leonard Petlakh, Executive Director of the Kings Bay Y. “The additional space will allow the Y to offer its services to more people in the community.”
Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein has been instrumental in securing capital funding for the Y to help open this new location in Sheepshead Bay, Kings Bay Y reps said.
The Kings Bay Y of Emmons Avenue is scheduled to open sometime in September.
