Neighborhood Guide

Sheepshead Bay

Sheepshead Bay feels like a small, close-knit waterfront town where residents spend the day fishing and the evenings eating at local seafood restaurants.

This waterfront neighborhood packs in a lot of personality, with some awesome views to boot. It’s home to families who have lived in the area for decades, as well as a diverse immigrant population. You’ll find fishing boats docked in the bay and locals crammed into seafood joints like Randazzo’s Clam Bar. Sheepshead Bay is Brooklyn’s water town, through and through.
