Neighborhood Description

Perhaps best known as the Russian neighborhood in Brooklyn, Brighton Beach has long attracted New Yorkers during the summer months because of its proximity to the ocean and to neighboring Coney Island.

Dubbed “Little Odessa” by locals due to the concentration of residents who immigrated from the Ukrainian coastal town, Brighton Beach is bordered by Coney Island to the west, Manhattan Beach to the east, Sheepshead Bay to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the south.

Brighton Beach Avenue, accessible by the B and Q trains to the Brighton Beach stop and the B train to the Ocean Parkway stop, is characterized by fresh-fruit stands, liquor stores, cheaply-priced caviar stands, and various restaurants and shops whose ornate facades and Cyrillic signs transport a person to a different time and place. While residents of Brighton Beach are largely of Eastern European Jewish descent and are connected by their fluency in Russian language, the neighborhood becomes peppered with outside visitors—both tourists and NYC locals—during its peak summer season.

Once characterized by the bungalows built as vacation homes in the early twentieth century, Brighton Beach has seen an increase in the construction of high-rise condominium buildings in recent years. The residential blocks between Ocean View and Brighton Beach Avenue are marked by multifamily homes, while Brightwater Court is home to more traditional rentals and a number of co-ops. Among the notable attractions in Brighton Beach are the boardwalk restaurant Volna, Tatiana Restaurant and Nightclub, a unique establishment described by its owner as “dining with attitude,” and, of course, the Brighton Beach Boardwalk. The annual Brighton Jubilee Festival is a mix of international foods, local merchandise, and entertainment for all ages.

Pop culture references are numerous when it comes to this neighborhood, which served as the setting for the 1983 Neil Simon play Brighton Beach Memoirs, and was more recently used as the backdrop for New York television shows like Law & Order, Blue Bloods, and Person of Interest. From busy public beaches to a vibrant and ethnic local community, Brighton Beach offers a good mix of entertainment and that small, quirky neighborhood vibe.
