Seafood, seagulls and salt-air greet those house hunters looking for waterfront living when they arrive in Sheepshead
Bay. The neighborhood hosts a range of living options including single family homes, low-rise apartment buildings,
mid-century brick rowhouses and converted beach bungalows. Townhouse duplexes complete with driveways, twostory,
two-family attached and semi-attached homes, as well as co-ops also define Sheepshead Bay. Most recently,
new luxury condos are dotting the waterfront including the Breakers, a waterfront gated community with private
boardwalk, pool, parking, and gym.
Complete with a Sheepshead Bay Yacht Club and bait-and-tackle shop, the neighborhood feels more fishing village
than city. Numerous sidewalk cafés and restaurants line the waterfront avenue and are filled with people on warm
summer nights, many who travel over the water after a concert or ballgame in nearby Coney Island. Sheepshead Bay
is approximately a fifty-minute ride on the MTA from Times Square. A mixed-use development (with national retailers)
is planned directly across from Exit 8 of the Belt Parkway, and adjacent to the elevated subway station served by the
B and Q trains.
