"I remember old Bay Ridge"

I moved from Bay Ridge in 1988 after living there from 1973. Got my first studio (1973) apartment (with a yard) for $90/month gas, electric included. Was a friendly, crime free area in the 70's. Virtually Norwegian, Greek and Italian ONLY. Lots of stores on 3rd ave between 69th and 86th streets and a short (healthy) walk down to Shore Road park or Bliss park. Churches, restaurants and bars/pubs aplenty. Good transit with the RR subway line and B63, B37, B16 buses. It was a wonderful time to live in Bay Ridge, Dyker or Bensonhurst. Safe streets ANY hour, day or night for women to walk. I wish I had a time machine so I could go back. The most beautiful spot in Bay Ridge?? The hill in Bliss Park over looking the 69th street pier and bay, now called Veterans Memorial Pier.
  • Stores, stores, stores
  • available apartments
  • friendly neighbors
  • Nice restaurants; lots of bars
  • Nice summer sea breezes near Shore Road
  • Rents freakin' high
  • parking sucks, big time
  • getting too gentrified
  • Parking is difficult after rush hour
  • Quite a commute to Manhattan

"An Unforgettable Place"

Bay Ridge. A calm and quiet neighborhood. This is a great spot to live with public transportation at the heart. The main subways and main buses are near to get you anywhere. The little shops along the streets provide many food, gifts, and other items to suit ones needs. There is always somewhere fun to go for a run or walk. In the time I lived there, crime was low. It felt safe to be out at night. There was no need to constantly look over your shoulder. Bay Ridge is a neighborhood full of smiling people and societal happiness. It is a place I will never forget and cant wait to return to one day!
