Brighton Beach and Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn

For the third installment of my Brooklyn Neighborhoods series, I will revisit a few unusual and colorful roads run parallel through Brooklyn’s diverse beach communities. Brooklyn’s beaches occupy a small jetty of land that runs three or four miles east to west, with the Atlantic Ocean to the south and Sheepshead Bay, Jamaica Bay and Coney Island Creek to the north east.

These areas can be quite gritty and include the massive spectacle of Coney Island, which I have posted about on this blog more than once.  So, for this post I’ve focused on on the quieter eastern communities of Brighton Beach and Sheepshead Bay, with images taken along Oriental Boulevard, Brighton Beach Avenue and Shore Parkway.  I hope that they capture some of the great diversity of life in these communities.
