Rolling hills, appealing brick row houses and conventional Italian eateries define Bay Ridge. This remote Brooklyn neighborhood offers awesome views of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and New york city Harbor. Its waterside esplanade, parks and arboretums provide adequate opportunity for taking in the surroundings. Bay Ridge might feel like a small on its quiet backstreet, but endeavor onto the main shopping opportunities and you'll experience all of the dynamic commerce of big-city life. Commuters are well-connected, too: The X27 and X37 reveal buses make the journey to and from Manhattan in as low as 30 minutes, and the R train shuttles residents to Union Square in 40 minutes.
