Body by Brooklyn and the Chocolate Factory’s Role in
the Clinton Hill Neighborhood

275 Park Avenue in Clinton Hill, the beautiful brick
building that now houses Body by Brooklyn, was once a
lucrative chocolate factory that produced and distributed
Tootsie Rolls for the entire country. In 1996, real estate
developer Alex Goldin and his wife Mira purchased the
deserted chocolate factory and converted 275 Park Avenue
into the first luxury loft apartment rentals in the area.

Mira Goldin was passionate about making the ground floor
space in 275 Park Avenue her own and tapped architect Moon
Kim to help her create Body by Brooklyn, a 10,000
square-foot spa and lounge that combines the charm of
popular Eastern European bathhouses and West Coast spa
amenities and services with the simplicity of modern
metropolitan design. The spa, with event space, bar and lounge opened for business in April 2006.

Body by Brooklyn is a unique spa by any standards,
embracing Korean, American, European and Russian influences
to create the best relaxation experience Brooklyn has to
offer. The spa has not only encouraged a number of other
local businesses to open up in the area, but Body by
Brooklyn continues to support the community by purchasing
goods and services provided by Brooklynites and particularly
Clinton Hill residents and business owners.

Additionally, Body by Brooklyn has become a neighborhood
meeting place, where the community comes to gather for
elegant cocktail parties, community networking functions and
even live jazz on Friday nights. It’s a place where Brooklyn
movers and shakers can mingle with young entrepreneurs to
exchange ideas and foster relationships, encouraging the
continual growth and rise of Clinton Hill. It’s also a place
that looks to partner with and service other local
