Rolling hills, attractive brick row homes and standard Italian eateries characterize Bay Ridge. This remote Brooklyn neighborhood provides breathtaking views of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and New york city Harbor. Its waterside esplanade, parks and botanical gardens provide ample opportunity for taking in the scenery. Bay Ridge may feel like a little town on its quiet side streets, but endeavor onto the primary shopping opportunities and you'll experience all 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 locals to Union Square in 40 minutes.
