Rolling hills, appealing brick row houses and conventional Italian restaurants identify Bay Ridge. This remote Brooklyn neighborhood offers breathtaking views of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and New york city Harbor. Its waterfront esplanade, parks and arboretums offer adequate opportunity for soaking in the scenery. Bay Ridge may feel like a little town on its peaceful side road, but endeavor onto the primary shopping opportunities and you'll experience all the dynamic commerce of big-city life. Commuters are well-connected, too: The X27 and X37 express buses make the journey to and from Manhattan in as low as Thirty Minutes, and the R train shuttle bus locals to Union Square in 40 minutes.
