A peninsula bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Jamaica Bay and Sheepshead Bay, Manhattan Beach was developed as two resorts by Austin Corbin. When the resort business declined, a real estate mogul named Joseph P. Day stepped in and bought out Corbin’s son. In 1908, residential construction began just north of the resorts.
Currently, Manhattan Beach’s home market consists primarily single-family homes in the inland community, with some exceptional waterfront properties. Residents can enjoy breathtaking views and 40-acres of green-space at Manhattan Beach Park.
Community Single family homes now define the inland community, with some exceptional waterfront properties. The eastern end of the neighborhood is dominated by the 70-plus-acre campus of the Kingsborough Community College. Founded in 1963, the College serves about 30,000 students a year, offering a wide range of credit and non-credit courses in the liberal arts and career education, as well as a number of specialized programs. The Leon M. Goldstein High School opened on the campus in 2003.
The facility offers breathtaking views overlooking three bodies of water: Sheepshead Bay, Jamaica Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The neighborhood’s main green-space is the 40-acre Manhattan Beach Park. The park features baseball and softball fields, basketball and tennis courts, and picnic areas complete with barbeque pits. Breathtaking panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean add to the appeal of this green-space, and remind visitors and residents alike that Manhattan Beach is one of the few places in New York City that offers a combination of spectacular ocean views and recreational options. Public transportation in Manhattan Beach is provided by the B1 and B49 local buses. At the western end of the neighborhood, the Q/B subway line (”Brighton Beach” stop) offers local and express trains that run through the heart of Brooklyn, to the Atlantic-Pacific transportation hub (11 train lines, 12 bus lines, LIRR) and Manhattan. The “Brighton Beach” station is only 2 stops away from the Coney Island/Stillwell Avenue depot, which provides a transfer to the D, F, and N train lines, as well as several additional bus lines, including the Manhattan-bound express X28 and X38. Auto-commuters will appreciate being next to the Shore Parkway (part of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway network), as well as 3 major thoroughfares - Ocean and Coney Island Avenues, and the Ocean Parkway.
