This is called little Odessa. The boardwalk is great! Walkers, bikers, swimmers, it's all there. Great cafes to stop and grab a bite. Treat yourself after to Sahara's Turkish Place on Coney Island Ave.. The best Turkish food ever!!!

Brighton Beach is vast and covers a large area followed by Coney Island Beach. It was very clean and there are changing booths on the beach. Definitely worth a visit for a day out to get away from the hustle and bustle of NYC.

We went out if season which was fine, beautiful long boardwalk, well worth a visit. Watch ‘The Warriors’ movie before you go, a trip down memory lane!

We went to the Aquarium and decided to walk down the boardwalk to Brighton Beach. Loved walking in and out of the different shops and browsing all the Russian goods. Lots of stores and restaurants. Will definitely return!

Brighton Beach looks like time stopped there. All immigrants from USSR who still doesn't speak English. It's always noisy there and crowd. One of the good things there are good Russian stores.
