Brighton Beach Avenue runs underneath the elevated subway tracks of the Q train. The surrounding area, aptly nicknamed "Little Odessa", consists primarily 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). Not surprisingly, 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 at all representative of "Russian" culture is an open (and very 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.
