View of the beach and pier -- the pier still being repaired, so it's closed for now -- supposed to be open for July 4th. Let's hope!

 

Nathan's has been around
for a long time --
 but it still doles out a good hotdog and French fries!

Another view of the Boardwalk

 

View of the Oceanfront condos, closest to Brighton Beach (only from $500s to more than $2 million) -- it's a steal!

 

 

There are a few Russian cafés (e.g. Tatiana, Volna) at the Brighton Beach section of the Boardwalk. You can try Chicken Kiev and have a borscht salad!

 



Tatiana (there's also the nearby Tatiana Grill)

 

The Volna Cafe-Restaurant

The Boardwalk is named the "Riegelmann Boardwalk"

 

Another mention of the location you're at, along with yet another map of the boardwalk, etc.
