Location: Southern Brooklyn. Brighton Beach is the area around Brighton Beach Avenue located next to the 'B' train terminal station (the 'Q' train will also work if you want to get there faster). It lies just east of better-known Coney Island.
Character: Brighton Beach Avenue lies underneath the elevated subway tracks of the Q train. The surrounding area, nicknamed "Little Odessa", consists mostly of tall multi-apartment buildings inhabited, in large part, by the first and second generation of immigrants from the former Soviet Union (mostly, Ukraine and Belorussia, but also Russia proper). As a result, many of the neighborhood's residents are Russian-speaking.
The wooden boardwalk is apparently the place to go for a stroll, "see and be seen", and breathe in some fresh air. Brighton Beach Avenue itself serves as a commercial hub.
