Bergen Beach, a peninsula in Jamaica Bay in southeast Brooklyn, truly offers its residents a suburban feel with a mix of small and large homes on tree-lined streets and the only access to the neighborhood being by bus or car. With a huge active park, many playgrounds, lots of coffee shops, salons, restaurants, and neighborhood retailers, as well as top public elementary school, Bergen Beach is a huge draw for anyone looking to raise a family.  Real Estate in Bergen Beach comprises a mix of single family homes, duplexes and 3-4 story condos mostly on large lots with communal gardens, pools, tennis and basketball courts.  The recent addition of a 40,000sf Fairway supermarket spurring new tenants Carter’s, Osh Kosh, Five Below, Starbuck’s and Chipotle is a boost to existing property values, making up for the neighborhood’s isolation. Another boon to local Bergen Beach residents, will be the planned $6.5 million community farm on 2-acres next to PS 312 designed to serve the local schools and teach students the benefit of home grown food.
