Rolling hills, attractive brick row homes and conventional Italian dining establishments characterize Bay Ridge. This remote Brooklyn area offers spectacular views of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and New york city Harbor. Its waterfront esplanade, parks and arboretums offer sufficient chance for taking in the landscapes. Bay Ridge might feel like a little town on its peaceful backstreet, but venture onto the primary shopping opportunities 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 homeowners to Union Square in 40 minutes.
