SHEEPSHEAD BAY - A broken-down hotel in Sheepshead Bay has been transformed into a sparkling new school.

Brooklyn Amity School on Shore Parkway is a private school that aims to emphasize science and math.

The school has a modest tuition, but does offer scholarships to get the best students in the city.

Officials say the transformation is remarkable because it only took six months to construct.
