Sheepshead Bay is the neighborhood bordered by Ocean Parkway to the west, Avenue T to the north, and water masses to the south and east (Sheepshead Bay and the Plumb Beach Channel, respectively). Named after a rare fish said to resemble a sheep, Sheepshead Bay closely resembles its neighbor Brighton Beach in demographics– the area is comprised of many immigrants from the Soviet Union. For those looking to find a safe area with great schools for their children, Sheepshead Bay can’t be beat. Real estate prices are reasonable, with plenty of bungalows available, as well as new condominium developments. The neighborhood has a strong sense of history and many businesses have been around for years. Its proximity to the ocean is a boon for fisherman and boat-owners, and has kept places like Stella Maris Fishing Station and Sheepshead Bay Yacht Club in business for decades. The waterfront area makes it a great destination for weddings and other celebrations, and a natural fit for seafood restaurants. The nightlife here is subdued, as most of Sheepshead Bay residents are families, but Baku Palace is a lush venue for large, lavish dinner parties. Emmons Avenue and Sheepshead Bay Road are the strips for shops and businesses. The area also includes New York’s first public memorial to the Holocaust, with the Holocaust Memorial Park just on the waterfront off of Shore Boulevard. Transportation from this neighborhood includes the B or Q train, the Belt Parkway and Nostrand Avenue for drivers. By Merritt Duncan
