More Walking Tours: Park Slope Historic District
Though Bay Ridge doesn’t get as much attention as its brownstone-heavy neighbors to the north, the neighborhood boasts historic architecture, diverse communities, solid food, and stunning waterfront views. This walking tour will take you from the Bay Ridge subway station through residential side streets and onto the neighborhood’s main drag of 3rd Avenue.
Bay Ridge is a relatively small community, spanning from Shore Road, which marks the northern boundary of the neighborhood, south to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Its western edge is completely bordered by parkland and The Narrows waterway. Give yourself an entire day to explore here, and you’ll cover most of the neighborhood.
