Rolling hills, appealing brick row homes and traditional Italian restaurants characterize Bay Ridge. This secluded Brooklyn neighborhood offers spectacular views of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and New York Harbor. Its waterfront esplanade, parks and botanical gardens supply adequate chance for soaking in the landscapes. Bay Ridge may seem like a village on its peaceful side streets, however venture 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 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.
