Neighborhood Description

When John Philip Sousa composed the “Manhattan Beach” march in 1893, real estate developer Austin Corbin was still giddy about his summer resort. But the success of nearby Coney Island would force Manhattan Beach to shift its focus, becoming a residential neighborhood.

Located in Brooklyn, Manhattan Beach is a pricey community bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the south and east, Sheepshead Bay to the north and Brighton Beach to the west. While the neighborhood is home to large populations of Italian, Russian and Ashkenazi Jewish residents, the community’s street names -- laid out in alphabetical order -- all derive from England.

Originally known as Sedge Bank, it was originally developed as a summer resort in 1877 by Corbin’s Manhattan Beach Improvement Company. Corbin, who later became president of the Long Island Rail Road, built two hotels there -- the Manhattan Beach Hotel, dedicated by former President Ulysses S. Grant in 1877, and the Oriental Hotel, dedicated by President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880.

By the time the Manhattan Beach Hotel commissioned Sousa’s march, the community’s reign as a summer resort was already near its end. The opening of amusement parks in nearby Coney Island drew tourists there, causing a decline in business at Manhattan Beach’s hotels.

By 1907, residential development began, altering the character of the community. During World War II, the former summer getaway was transformed into a Coast Guard base. But the land was later reclaimed by civilians.

Geographically small, the sleepy, affluent waterfront community once dubbed the “World’s Largest Privately Owned Playground” by Life magazine features free outdoor summer concerts at Kingsborough Community College, the only college in New York City with a private beach. Meanwhile, the 40-acre Manhattan Beach Park offers sports fields and picnic options, along with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Public transportation is provided by the B1 and B49 local buses, and motorists can access the Shore Parkway and three major thoroughfares -- Ocean and Coney Island avenues and the Ocean Parkway. At the western end of the neighborhood, the Q/B subway line offers local and express trains that run through the heart of Brooklyn, to the Atlantic-Pacific transportation hub and Manhattan.
