NEIGHBORHOOD GUIDE

Mill Basin

Surrounded by Jamaica Bay, this tiny neighborhood is a haven for nature and water lovers.

The South Brooklyn neighborhood of Mill Basin is almost completely bordered by Jamaica Bay, one of New York’s most spectacular wildlife preserves. The 18,000 acre wetland estuary, which spans to the Rockaways, offers both recreational activities and untouched land that is home to many species of birds, animals and fish. The heart of Mill Basin is made up mostly of smaller detached homes, while the waterfront is home to extravagant mansions. Overall this neighborhood is a paradise for fishers, boaters and jet skiers -- but it isn’t easy to get to. There’s no subway stop here, so the area must be accessed by bus or car. Photo courtesy of DeShaun Craddock via Flickr.
