neighborhood guide

Brighton Beach

This beachfront neighborhood will transport you right to Russia.

Brighton Beach is just east of Coney Island, and while both neighborhoods share a waterfront, Brighton Beach shines as the “Little Russia” of New York City. Grocery stores, restaurants, nightclubs, boutiques -- virtually everything here is influenced by its Russian heritage (or that of the other former republics of the USSR). For the full experience, eat Ukrainian food at Cafe Glechik and visit The National for a night of dancing and vodka. Don’t forget to take a stroll down the boardwalk, which is much more relaxed than the bustling boardwalk that runs through Coney Island. Photo courtesy of Axel Drainville via Flickr.
