Bay Ridge at a Glance
A textbook example of the quintessential Brooklyn neighborhood – complete with a waterfront promenade, great schools, stunning harbor and skyline views, affordable housing and a lively nightlife, Bay Ridge’s popularity is no surprise to its long-time residents. Like a small town in a big city, this neighborhood is now drawing younger families who are attracted to the new residential development projects coming to market and its quiet, familial streetscapes. Along its border to the south, the majestic Verrazano-Narrows Bridge joins the borough to Staten Island. Often remembered as the neighborhood featuring Italian-American life in the 1980s’ film “Saturday Night Fever,” Bay Ridge is now one of the most diverse areas in Brooklyn. The area is serviced by the R train and several buses that go around the borough, as well as, Staten Island.
