Rolling hills, appealing brick row homes and standard Italian dining establishments characterize Bay Ridge. This remote Brooklyn community offers awesome views of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and New york city Harbor. Its waterside esplanade, parks and botanical gardens provide adequate chance for soaking in the surroundings. Bay Ridge may seem like a small on its quiet backstreet, but endeavor onto the main shopping avenues and you'll experience all of the bustling commerce of big-city life. Commuters are well-connected, too: The X27 and X37 reveal buses make the journey to and from Manhattan in just 30 minutes, and the R train shuttle bus residents to Union Square in 40 minutes.
