Could Be Little Friendlier
Mar 2020
Brighton Beach is a very interesting and unique place. The shops and the food selection is varied and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, one never feels really welcomed and the service can be spotty--even rude at times--at both the shops and food establishments. If you can overlook this, you will enjoy the place. At the beach, the vibe becomes friendlier, so head over to the beach and boardwalk and you will have a more enjoyable experience.

A nice visit for an hour or two
Jun 2019
Beyond Coney Island is an old neighborhood called Brighton Beach. My wife and I each had elderly grandparents and/or aunts and uncles there. You can drive there and find a parking space, or take a subway line which ends in Coney Island and the stop before that is Brighton Beach. It used to be mostly older Jewish families and started changing as the younger adults moved to the burbs or the older ones passed away, but the last time I was there it was still a decent neighborhood, with a mix of Russian Jews, Russian non-Jews, Latinos, and a few Italians and Greeks. The best is to walk to the boardwalk only three blocks from the main street (which also has the el) and you will be right in front of the ocean! It is calming and beautiful and never too crowded, except maybe in peak of summer. The air is fresh and clean and the sound of the waves is wonderful. Directly behind and facing the boardwalk are older apartment builkings (a few new ones are poppig up but with less character). The main street, under the el, is an interesting mix of ethniciities, with stores and restaurants and stands of all kinds. If you only want the big famous sights, skip it. But it is a nice getaway in a different sort of neighborhood where you can see real New Yorkers in their daily lives, with a beautiful boardwalk right there.

Russian comunity place
Dec 2019
For over 20 years I used to live on Brighton Beach. Good and not long commute from Manhattan can serve you with clean and lovely beach. But most of the people going to Brighton for Russian food stores and restaurants.
If you love Russian style food you can find it in some expensive Restaurant like Tatiana, National or in a chip cafe .They practically at each corner on Brighton beach. Very good food market store is "Gurmanov", It located on Brighton Beach between 11 and 12 Brighton.Very nice place for walk and relax is Boardwalk, I love this place.

Nice beach
Sep 2019
The beach is lovely and sandy. Ideal for taking the kids for a day out, but be warned the restaurants and coffee shops don't open till noon. I wouldn't return.

Walked the boardwalk yesterday
Sep 2019
It could use some work! Some sections are gorgeous, others are falling apart with big holes a person could fall through, or screws sticking well out of the wood that would rip your foot apart.

But the beach is lovely, lots of lifeguards and showers and bathrooms, and big Russian restaurants to eat in.
