Sheepshead Bay Reviews

88
All Categories
Sheepshead Bay is a fairly peaceful neighborhood, with some great restaurants, and plenty of grocery stores, and a few clothing shops. It contains Emmons Avenue, a waterfront with piers and ships that offer fishing trips or daily cruises. There is also one movie theater located down Emmons Ave. Sheepshead Bay is connected to the MTA by the B and Q line, which makes access to other parts of Brooklyn, and Manhattan, very easy.

I lived in Chinatown Manhattan since I immigrated to America for 7 years until I was at the beginning of 8th grade. When it came, my family wanted to move to Brooklyn. We found this place Sheepshead Bay from the newspaper and it wasn't a bad deal. I am now in 10th grade so I have been here for about two years. The neighborhood isn't bad at all, it isn't dirty and quiet most of the time. There are few schools near where I live but I go to school in Manhattan. Not just that, the train station is really close and there are buses to the station if needed.
Little cultural diversity, however has been increasing over the past few years. Lots of restaurants and entertainment available and stays generally clean. Police are always on patrol and little crime occurs. The bay offers a nice spot for jogging and walks.
