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.

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.…
