These photos were taken at Brighton Beach in New York. The three of us took a train out to the beach on a sunny Thursday. We wanted to get out of the city for a minute and check out the local beaches.
Brighton Beach calls to the city dweller. Brighton Beach Boardwalk harbors many Russian restaurants that tempt passersby to spend a pleasant hour enjoying a delicious meal, welcome shade, and a beautiful view of the ocean. Lively and unique stores on Brighton Avenue attract the intrepid shopper. However, as always, in the summer, it is Brighton Beach’s warm ocean, hot sand, and salty air that are the ultimate draw.
There is a lot of history behind the beach including the Brighton Beach Music Hall, which featured such famous performers as Sophie Tucker. Horse racing began in Brighton Beach in 1879. William Engeman formed the Brighton Beach Racing Association with a course located between Ocean Parkway and Coney Island Avenue. Brighton Beach Avenue, the main street running under the elevated tracks of what are now the B and Q trains is filled with great little Russian markets and restaurants.
