Planet Wings

Opens at 10:30 AM
Planet Wings was conceived in 1994 by founders Franco and Paula Fidanza. They realized that there was an amazing untapped opportunity in the quickserve delivery market. For the most part, delivery service was limited to pizza and burgers and was being provided by only a handful of restaurants. With the growing popularity of chicken wings, Franco & Paula decided the market was ready for a quickserve concept that not only provided home delivery of their delicious chicken wings, but all their menu items… including cheese steaks, heroes, salads and kid’s meals. The first Planet Wings® concept store opened in January 1995 and Franco and Paula haven’t looked back. They committed to using only the highest quality chicken available and to give their customers an incredible value for their money. They also offered 20 outrageous wing flavors (now 24) and prepared each customers meal fresh to order. Coupled with super convenient delivery service, Franco and Paula had discovered the recipe for success. Planet Wings Franco and Paula spent the next couple of years perfecting the concept and now have stores throughout the greater NY metropolitan area and New Jersey. Paula and Franco have also stayed focused on giving back to the community, having contributed time, money and Planet Wings resources to charitable organizations and community programs designed to improve the quality of life for people in the communities where there is a Planet Wings store. To learn more about what Planet Wings is doing in local communities, visit the community section of this website. Where else can you get 24 flavors of delicious chicken wings, sandwiches, salads, burgers, wraps, cheese steaks and kid’s meals delivered to a customers door piping hot with one phone call!

Mermaid Spa

Opens at 08:00 AM
Mermaid Spa located in the Sea Gate area of Brooklyn has a reputation for being the best Russian baths in New York. Besides three Russian steam rooms, this bathhouse has a scorching dry sauna, a Turkish bath, two tile pools that are machine-fed with chopped ice and a circular Jacuzzi inside a lodge-like wooden hall. The entire facility is finished with wood and slate. Owners Zina and Boris Kotlyar, Joseph Feldsherov, and Aleks Khlebopros say they wanted to create an environment that was similar to an old style banya in Russia . "Marble is so cold, wood helps you feel warmer." The great quality of steam also helps to feel warmer. Mermaid Spa also offers Swedish and deep tissue massage in addition to traditional Russian massage with soap or venik - a leafy bundle of birch or oak twigs. The restaurant is great with authentic Russian dishes that you would not want to miss. Traditional Russian vodka, cold beer and freshly squeezed juices are also available. The resting area is cozy. In the summer visitors appreciate the fact that Mermaid Spa is located just a 5-minute walk to the beach. Russian steam room: An authentic Russian room with a stove made with granite rocks heated overnight to radiate intense heat. The stove has a hole to throw the water into. By throwing water on stones heated to extreme temperatures behind metal doors, steam droplets of exceptionally small size are created; this makes breathing easy and enjoyable. The temperatures usually do not exceed 80C/180F. Here people often hit themselves or others with bunches of dried branches and leaves from white birch or other suitable trees (called venik) in order to get a message and improve the circulation. In winter, branches that have been dried and then moistened in hot water are used. Felt hats are used to protect the head from heat. Pads are used to sit on as the hot, dry wood can be uncomfortable for bare skin.
