"Bay ridge - the best Brooklyn has to offer"

what can i say, i love bay ridge. i grew up here i worked here. bay ridge is one of the last few areas in brooklyn where you can enjoy what new york has to offer from the outer boros. it has eclectic night life and restaurants, bars. its trendy and fashionable. yet it also has that family oriented feel. its lined with beautiful victorians, mansions, 2 family buildings with ground floor retail, co-ops , condos, theres something here for every one. did i mention the bars and restaurants?? years ago, they used to call it "bar ridge" due to the number of bars that lined the city steets in this area.only hoboken has more bars per block than bay ridge, altho i have noticed alot more opening up around the area. great place to live work and play.

"not the most impressive block but..."

this is not the most impressive block in bay ridge . it is only lined with homes on one side due to the fact that the expressway is on the other side. there are alot of attatched brick row houses here with occasional semi attached home and a fire house up the block on 3 ave. this street also serves as an exit for the belt parkway. its only one block away from owls head park, which is also one of the largest parks in the neighborhood, full of daily activities including a dog run park. ther has been a few problems with car break ins due to the desolite location. but it is still a quiet area and nice place to live.

"hidden gem in bay ridge"

bliss terrace is one of those hidden blocks that no one know about, but wishes they did. its only one block long and hidden between 68st and bay ridge avenue. across the street is owls head park, one of the largest parks in the neighborhood. its a full hill top park full of walking trails and even a dog park at the bottom entrance. every halloween, the parks dept puts on a halloween show for the kids in the area, its actually quite large, and a real attraction. on a clear day you can see the manhattan skyline from the top of the park. its a great area for young families.

"Hugely populated mix of residential/commercial"

ahhh 13th ave in the heart of dyker heights brooklyn ny. i grew up on this ave as a kid hanging out getting into trouble. man those were some good times. we used to go egg throwing on halloween, toilet paper cars, shave cream sidewalks. anyways, well 13 ave is still a large italian area, with a mix of asian, and arabic people starting to move in. the businesses are still italian, plenty of pizza shops, nail stores, and salons. the area has some of the most expensive homes in brooklyn. im talking about mansions! very influential people live in this prestigious area.

"small unknown street"

dyker place is a small unknown street in bay ridge brooklyn , most of the people that live on this street use it as a short cut to get to 86 street rather than walk down seventh avenue. it runs parallel to the brooklyn queens expressway. the block it self is full of residential homes, that are well kept. occasionally there will be a car break in , because of the location it is located. its not a heavilly walkable street. none the less, its a quiet little street in a big city.

"noisy, high crime, poor architecture, empty lots."

mermaid ave runs parallel with surf ave in brooklyns coney island area. its dirty, high drug activity , the homes , buildings, and stores are run down. and who knows what the city was thinking when they decided to build those ugly looking housing developments there on prime water front property back in the 1960's. i dont travel too often to this area because theres no need to. private investors are attempting to turn the area around with new development, but this is one of those areas that will never change.

"great place for families, kids."

this street is great for families with children. its quiet, famiy oriented, and theres even a new park across the street that offers a kid play area, baseball fields, walking trails, and a running coarse. most of the homes here are 2 family hi ranches, and condos. its a nice alternative to living in the city with out dealing with all the fast paced craziness of the rest of the boros.

"nice area for surf and turf and boats"

i love this block, right across from the great kills marina. this block is filled with water view homes, and plenty of seafood restaurants. my personal fav. the marina cafe. its a small enclave just below hylan blvd. the side streets are full of residential homes, townhouses, and ranches.but its a nice feel to wake up and smell the ocean from your balcony.

"residential ave, main artery for driving"

this block if funny, driving up from father capodanno , its this huge street with richmond north hospital on one side and townhomes and bungalows on the other, then when you cross hylan blvd, it turns into this narrow one way street. but the wierdest thing i have seen is, every november, there are wild turkey crossing in the middle of the road , i mean dozens of them! i almost hit one a couple years back. i still wish i knew where these guys come from.

"dont get out of the car on this street!"

I have visited many streets and avenues on staten island , and i have to say this is probably the worst street on the island. alot of housing developments align the street which runs from richmond terrace to victory blvd. its a street with high crime, and drugs. lots of run down buildings, homes, dirty streets, abandoned cars. avoid this street at all costs.
tikiya0!
tikiya0! true that! i live on winter avenue and trust me i can't stand having to walk down to jersey street just to go to the store. So many hoodrats,people with no class and like you said,project buildings.not the area one would think their children will do okay in.try todt hill or somewhere in those areas.

"have a picnic here and watch the boats go by"

driving down hylan blvd untill u reach your destination is edgewater street. here u will get a terrific view of the narrows, verrazano bridge, brooklyn, and manhattan , all at once! and across the street is the alice austin house museum. take in the arts, of one of the first woman of photography right here on staten island. theres also a bed and breakfast hotel adjacent to the museum. definatley worth a trip to this street.

"quiet, lots of old victorian homes lines the ave"

vanderbilt ave, named after corneliuos vanderbilt. he owned most of the land in the area at the time, and help lay out the streets in the town also. it sits across from bayley seton hospital, and theres plenty of old victorians, and block mansions that line this avenue. it gets alittle more shady as u travel north , closer to the park hill developments. its a nice place for a stroll to take in some of the timeless architecture of the past.

"Some of the best views of the city IN the city!"

Baystreet landing is comprised of some old converted warehouses dating back some twenty plus years ago. They offer absolutley beautiful views of the verrazano bridge, the manhattan skyline and new jersey skyline. The staten island ferry is a 5 min walk (which is free) and you are in manhattan in 25 mins. The area has seen many improvements over the last few years. Art galleries, richmond bank ball park, many exciting restaurants, and watering holes, new high rise condos,and of course how can you forget the St. George Theather on Hyatt Street!!. once you visit you wont want to leave.

"one of the hilliest streets in staten island that rival san francisco!"

Just walking up the street will exhaust you . This has to be one of the highest upgrade streets on the island, but you can get a view of the jersey and manhattan sky line from here. The homes that occupy this street are hill top with unbeatable views also. The street level homes are more rundown and shady, in disrepair. Empty lots, and old neglected, abandoned vehicles dont help the cause either.

"a tranquil block where you can find some of the oldest homes in staten island dating back to the late 1800's"

This is a great block if you want to know the way some of the earlier staten islanders lived during that time period. Many of the homes built on this block date back to the late 1800's making them some of the oldest in the city. The street it self is not easy to find especially if you are looking for it, because its only one block long and tucked behind the old bayley hospital grounds. The homes that alligne the block belonged to the brew masters that called this part home decades before. Every thing from red brick mansions, to victorians, and greek revival homes. Truley a great piece of architecture that still stands today.
