Rolling hills, appealing brick row homes and conventional Italian restaurants identify Bay Ridge. This secluded Brooklyn neighborhood offers breathtaking views of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and New york city Harbor. Its waterside esplanade, parks and arboretums provide sufficient chance for soaking in the scenery. Bay Ridge may seem like a small on its peaceful side road, but endeavor onto the primary shopping avenues and you'll experience all of 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 just 30 minutes, and the R train shuttles residents to Union Square in 40 minutes.
