Bay Ridge Apartments

Nestled on Brooklyn’s southwest coast, Bay Ridge offer some of the borough’s most beautiful scenery, with views of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, the bay and harbor, and Staten Island beyond.

(Fort Hamilton is a residential neighborhood within Bay Ridge. It’s also a post of the Army National Guard and the United States Army Reserve, and these provide military support for New York City.)

Bay Ridge has expansive water views, and one of the advantages of living here is having those views right outside your window. Neighboring Dyker Heights is home to legendary Christmas light displays and holiday decorations, and Sunset Park, also nearby, holds Brooklyn’s Chinatown, where many say you can find some of the best dim sum in New York City.

The area’s heritage is as an Italian, Irish and Norwegian neighborhood, but since the 1990s it has had an influx of residents from Greece, Russia, Poland, and parts of the Middle East. A family-centric neighborhood with a history as a middle-class haven, it’s not unusual to meet Bay Ridge residents whose roots go back several generations. 86th Street is where people go to shop, and two of the main commercial streets, Third Avenue and Fifth Avenue, have a wide variety of bars and international restaurants. Highlights include Tanoreen, a Middle Eastern restaurant that often turns up on annual best-of lists, Moroccan restaurant Casablanca, and Gino’s for Italian food and pizza.

More about Bay Ridge and Fort Hamilton

During the New York City Marathon each November, Bay Ridge welcomes more than 40,000 runners as they come off the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, touching down for their miles in Brooklyn. Local landmarks include the Harbor Defense Museum, as well as the Robert E. Lee House and Colonel’s Row, all of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Residential buildings in the area include several new luxury high-rises, but the majority of the neighborhood’s apartments are pre-war. Some Bay Ridge blocks have multi-family detached buildings, where you may be the only renter. Some of these units feature outdoor space, private decks, and private entrances. Transportation options include the R train, many MTA buses, and two express buses that primarily serve Manhattan-bound commuters.
