Location: Southern Brooklyn. Brighton Beach is the area around Brighton Beach Avenue located next to the terminal stations of the B train (the 'Q' train also works if you want to get there faster). The neighborhood lies just east of somewhat better-known Coney Island and its famous beach boardwalk.

Character: Brighton Beach Avenue runs underneath the elevated subway tracks of the Q train. The surrounding area, aptly nicknamed "Little Odessa", consists mostly of tall multi-apartment buildings inhabited mostly by first- and second-generation of immigrants from the former Soviet Union (especially Ukraine and Belorussia, but also Russia proper). As a result, many of the neighborhood's residents are Russian-speaking and many of the signs are in Cyrillics. Whether or not this Odessa-accented enclave is representative at all of Russian culture is an open (and debatable) question.

Besides Brighton Beach Avenue, which serves as the neighborhood's main commercial hub, another popular neighborhood drag is the boardwalk – a place to go for a stroll, "see and be seen", and take in some fresh air.
