Bay Ridge

Overlooking New York Bay, Bay Ridge is located in the southwest corner of Brooklyn. Bound by Sunset Park on the north, Fort Hamilton Parkway and Dyker Heights on the east, the Narrows Strait on the west and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge on the south.

Bay Ridge's rich history dates back to the 18th century. Originally named Yellow Hook for its yellow appearing soil, it was changed to Bay Ridge in the 1850s. During this time Bay Ridge became a waterside retreat for Manhattanites in search of grand-style summer homes. Some of these mansions still stand along Shore Road today, although the completion of BMT's Fourth Avenue Subway in 1915 gave way to more modest housing.

A quiet, tree-lined neighborhood, Bay Ridge is seeing new development, while remaining true to its sense of small town living and community. There are two historic residential districts on the National Register of Historic Places: The Senator Street Historic District (40 three-story, bow-front brownstone row houses built between 1906 and 1912) and The Houses at 216-264 Ovington Ave. (20 two- and three-story, bow-front brownstone row houses built between 1908 and 1910.)

Community amenities include: the 18-hole Dyker Beach Golf Club, the seawall promenade, unique restaurants especially along Third Avenue, and the 69th Street Pier where fishermen travel from far and wide to try their luck in the waters of The Bay Ridge Anchorage.

Housing Stock: Mansions, new developments, 19th and early 20th century multi-family and brownstones.
