    When it's not summer, it's soooooo peaceful. Go around here during a sunset.

    It has changed a lot over the past 40 years, but it's a great place to walk.

    Russian neighborhood a short walk from Coney Island. 30 years ago it was $1 vodka shots & Russian grandmas in girdles. Now it’s swanky restaurants. B or Q train to Brighton Beach; 45-60 min ride.

    Have a Russian experience without leaving the USA. Fantastic food and bakeries, close to the beach, basically a magical getaway.

    Surprisingly nice beach just 30 mins from Atlantic Terminal. Start here then walk down the boardwalk to Coney Island for a perfect NYC beach day.

    Very relaxed vibe, not super crowded. Yes, not super clean but the sand is soft and you can get your brand watching done.

    Be careful where you step, unless you want battle wounds from a giant, razor-sharp rock lodged in the water around the Brighton 4th St area.

    Enjoy time in the sand and sun with your pup at any time during the year. Just make sure that the pooch is leashed while he's chasing the tide.

    Open water swimmers: the CIBBOWS meet up at 10am on the weekends to swim along Coney Island. Suitable for all skill levels, and it's a blast!
