Sheepshead Bay 

Sheepshead Bay is a neighbord separating the mainland of Brooklyn from the eastern portion of Coney Island.  Historically known as a Russian community, Sheepshead Bay now has a far more diverse population.  The town's shops and restaurants, particularly those one Emmons Avenue are reflective of the towns growing diversity.  The heart of this area is the bay itself, filled with piers, yachts and private fishing boats.  Sheepshead Bay offers easy acess to the Belt Parkway, two convienent subway lines and express buses that run to the city.  It is certainly a family neighborhood with several schools available for children of all ages.
