Compilation of new beachside developments in Coney Island and Brighton Beach Compilation of new beachside developments in Coney Island and Brighton Beach
New York City has 520 miles of waterfront, longer than the shorelines of Miami, Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco combined. While a great deal of this coastline is set along the city's numerous estuaries, rivers, and bays; Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island have long stretches of oceanfront real estate where most of the city's 14 miles of public beaches can be found.
For those who love the ocean or looking to island-hop on the NYC archipelago, several full-service luxury rental and condo developments have opened in southern Brooklyn and the Rockaways in recent years. The latest opportunity to buy is at 179 Ocean View, a nearly-finished seven-story condominium in Manhattan Beach where upper-floor units have ocean views to the horizon.

Tucked away from the crowds of beachgoers, Manhattan Beach is one of the city's best-kept secrets. Situated on a peninsula across from Sheepshead Bay, the serene and green neighborhood is dominated by large single-family houses with low-rise apartment buildings scattered on busier streets. Daily commutes to Manhattan can be intimidating via subway or car if there are delays, however, the expanding New York Ferry service promises to add new routes to the area in the coming years.
To the benefit of units without an ocean view, all residents will have access to a common roof deck with beach and skyline vistas. Other shared amenities in the pet-friendly building include on-site parking for six vehicles, an elevator, and keyless smart system entry doors. There is also a flood mitigation system installed on lower floors to protect the building's vital components from flooding and storm surges.
