Brighton Beach, NY
These are pictures of Brighton Beach that we took when we visited Brooklyn in New York.
Brighton Beach is a very popular place to visit at all times of the year.
The first picture is a view of Brighton from the water's edge.
You can't see the ocean water from the boardwalk, so you have to walk down to the water's edge
The sand has been replenished many times and it is real deep, but packed.
If you follow the boardwalk it will take you all the way to Coney Island, and can enjoy all the amusements, activities and fun in Astroland. The walk is about a mile, and you pass the New York Aquarium on the way.
The Brighton Boardwalk
It's a nice walk, but can become rather crowded at times, but there is so much to see that you don't even realize you walked that far, until... you have to walk back.
Taking the Subway
Most of the time when we feel like doing some sightseeing in New York too, we'll drive to Brooklyn, park our car, and then take the subway into New York. It takes about an hour, but we get some views of Manhattan that we wouldn't normally get to see.
To get there by NY subway from Manhattan, catch the F train and get off at the NY Aquarium, or B train and get off at Ocean Parkway. Subway tokens are obsolete now. They are using the plastic cards and swiping them.
Belt Parkway, Exit 7 B, then turn south and go all the way to the beach on Ocean Parkway. If you arrive before 9 AM, you shouldn't have trouble finding a place to park on the street. Head towards the beach and park around there.
