Bay Ridge Far in the Southwestern oceanic outskirts of Brooklyn lies Bay Ridge, what many Brooklynites and even Manhattan dwellers are calling the next big neighborhood. Why? Well, partially thanks to low rent prices, as the area is about an hour out of Manhattan. Only accessible by R train, the lack of transportation options is one major drawback to living here. Or, accept the lower rent prices and take more car services. A Business Insider article from June 2014 entitled “NYC Real Estate Has Gotten So Hot That Stockbrokers, Hipsters, And Yuppies Are Invading The Far Reaches Of Brooklyn” explored the phenomenon of anyone and everyone moving where housing is more affordable. Despite the looming gentrification, Bay Ridge still has an old school Brooklyn feel, with plenty of family-owned businesses still identifiable on the tree-lined streets. The Gowanus Expressway, Fort Hamilton Parkway and the Atlantic Ocean border this seafront neighborhood. Neighboring areas include Dyker Heights and Fort Hamilton and on nice days Bay Ridge residents can even walk along the oceanfront to Bath Beach. Bay Ridge has become a destination for dining, shopping and more in the past few years and trendy New Yorkers are not hesitating to make a home in the area. Third Ave. is a popular destination in the neighborhood. Check out restaurants like Pashazadé (http://www.pashazade.net), which serves Middle Eastern cuisine like juicy chicken kabobs and lentil soup in a trendy space. Glow Thai (http://glowthai.com) is another neighborhood hotspot, offering your traditional noodle and stir fry dishes along with an extensive cocktail list that uses fun ingredients like gummy bears and coconut milk.

    Visited here for a wedding and was blown away by its cleanliness and scenery. There is some beautiful architecture all throughout Bay Ridge.

    Bay Ridge is great! A lot of great local bars and deli's (Deli on 5th is the best), although if you are someone who likes to cook grocery stores are hard to come by but over all I love this neighborhood, quick walk to an awesome view of the Brooklyn Bridge too!
