Ruff Picketty LLC has just purchased the retail property 41-45 Picketty Ruff Walk in Fire Island for $1.2 million.
This is the first time in 60 years that this property has changed ownership.
The property, which is located at the entrance to Fire Island Pines, features several boutiques, a restaurant called the Canteen, a large outdoor swimming pool, cabana, and bar.
Becksmad Associates sold this retail property to Ruff Picketty. Muroff Hospitality Group’s Mitch Muroff represented the seller, Becksmad Associates, in the deal and secured Ruff Picketty LLC as the buyer. The transaction closed last Friday.
Muroff also recently served as the exclusive broker for the Ice Palace Resort deal in the neighboring Cherry Grove, as previously reported.
He considers 41-45 Picketty Ruff to be a strategic piece of retail.
“There is very little retail in all of The Pines,” Muroff said. “The only retail is located in a small strip. It’s strategic because as soon as you arrive in The Pines or Fire Island by ferry, everyone who arrives will arrive in a harbor essentially in front of this location.”
Fire Island is a vehicle-free island and is only accessible by ferry from Bay Shore, Sayville or Patchogue, all of which are on the south shore of Long Island.
Fire Island Pines, known for its beaches and LGBTQ community, is one of Fire Island’s 18 neighborhoods.
