Sheepshead Bay Real Estate

The fishing boats on Emmons Avenue still go out in the mornings and come back at night. Lundy's might be gone, but Randazzo's Clam Bar, Brennan & Carr, and Roll n' Roaster still pack them in day and night with homemade food and service Sheepshead Bay-style. That means a dose of humor and a tad of patience. The food is to die for.

This neighborhood still has old timers who swear by it. They take long walks across the Ocean Avenue Footbridge to Manhattan Beach and on weekends stroll to next-door Brighton Beach. On the other side, Gerritson Beach is one of New York's least known neighborhoods with small bungalows, pathways between homes, busy marinas, and one of the best skateboard parks in the five boroughs.

Sheepshead Bay has the most diverse housing stock of all its neighbors. Single-family detached brick homes with front and backyards dominate the streetscapes. Developers have begun to build condos overlooking the water and inland, introducing a combination of luxury and smaller units to the local market. Cooperative apartment buildings toward the Q/B train stop away from the water offer one- and two-bedrooms for sale. Comedian Larry David and football coach Vince Lombardi hail from Sheepshead Bay. See, funny and tough.

CLASSICS AND INSIDE TIPS:

Dine: Randazzo's Clam Bar. Still among the best clam bars in New York City. The fish and red and white sauce is as fresh as can be.

Do: Go fishing. The boats go out every morning for half and full-day tours looking for striped bass, fluke, and blue fish. The ride to the Atlantic Ocean out of the bay is worth the price alone.

See: Holocaust Memorial Park. Dedicated by New York City Mayor Ed Koch in 1985, this waterfront memorial and park has become an annual gathering place for those who want to remember.
