This is a very nice area to visit all year round for the restaurants, but especially from April through September for the outside areas because your by the water and there is so much to see and appreciate.

Emmons Avenue in Sheepshead Bay has a marina, and is a great place to take a walk, enjoy one of the many restaurants and admire the view. In the summer it is a short bus ride or walk to Manhattan Beach (in Brooklyn not Manhattan). There is a parking garage and street parking so you don't have to worry about... More

I walked along remembering the "good memories" I had with my family. Family eating clams on the half shell, love and laughter. Times change but memories of one's childhood last forever. Make new memories while you can.

It seems wherever you look here you are surrounded by apartment buildings. I've been coming here to visit friends for over 40 years and there has been a change in the character of the neighborhood. Good access to public transportation and getting into the city.

Located on one of the Atlantic Ocean's bays, this is the place to come to if you want to do some deep sea fishing, either full or half days are available. after a day on the water come ashore and enjoy a delicious meal at one of the restaurants or cafes that line the avenue, particularly fish that was caught...

This is a great place to watch the swans in the inlet as well as the fishing boats bring back their catch of the day. There are numerous restaurants along the main drag, that looks towards the inlet. located not far from Kingsborough community college and local beaches. There is also a great grocery store close by as well.

I live in Sheepshead Bay. I grew up in Marine Park. Close by. This is home.It was a great old school neighborhood, Emmons Ave had great bars, restaurants, and night clubs. Pips was a great comedy club. Rodney Dangerfield, David Brenner, & Andrew Dice Clay broke from Pips. Lundy's was one of the best restuarants in NYC, possibly the world.... More

This area has some great restaurants and scenery. If you go down Emmons, the restaurants on the waterside usually have tables on decks. On the other side is the famous Randazzo's, the Opera House and Rolling Roster, just to name a few. You can take a fishing boat from the docks, walk across the water on the foot bridge and... More
