More about Sheepshead Bay

This ocean-side community is home to bustling Russian and Chinese communities, as well as globally-acclaimed restaurants and food shops, and because of the large Russian community, many stores have signs in both English and Russian. Restaurants are primarily Italian and Russian, including nightclubs like Paradise, and the piers have a seafood market, as well as provide the launch for many tour boats, including fishing tours, which have replaced the fishing fleets that once existed. In fact, Sheepshead Bay is named for the now almost extinct Sheepshead fish.

Emmons Avenue is Sheepshead Bay’s main strip, and within a short stretch of the avenue delicacies from Turkey, Italy and Greece can be consumed. The neighborhood also houses one of Brooklyn’s Chinatowns. Retail shopping can be done at the Kings Plaza Mall, and there are multiple shopping areas throughout the community. In addition to Sheepshead Bay, the community also includes the smaller neighborhoods of Gerritsen Beach and Plumb Beach.

The communities first residents were the Canarsee Indians (Canarsie is named for them), and by the 19th century it had become a destination location for water-lovers. For beach lovers, Coney Island and Brighton Beach are still easily accessible, as are Manhattan Beach, Floyd Bennett Field and Marine Park (the expansive 798 acre marine parkland), and at the western end of the bay, there is Holocaust Memorial Park. Childhood home to many luminaries, Sheepshead Bay has produced some of the country’s best comics, including Andrew Dice Clay and Larry David, as well as athletes like Vince Lombardi and Lee Mazzilli.

The commute to Manhattan is on the BMT line (B and Q trains), and although it is lengthy, the proximity to the water is what lures visitors to become residents.
