    Brighton Beach

    Has anyone been to Brighton Beach, the New York Russian district? I'd simply like to know what to expect and what to see.

    I've been to Brighton Beach in England. No sand, just stones. Lots of gays too. It's like San Fransico, except with lots of old people too.

    Ever since I was a young boy
    I've played the silver ball
    From Soho down to Brighton
    I must have played them all
    But I ain't seen nothing like him
    In any amusement hall
    That deaf, dumb and blind kid
    Sure plays a mean pinball

    Cool song BM. I remember hearing that song when it first came out. It must have been 20+ years ago. Man I am old.

    Never been to Brighton beach and apparently not too many of us regulars on the forum have either.

    So what brings you to Brighton beach anyway?

    Soho is London's gay area, and Brighton is England's other gay hot spot.

    Well, I guess a trip to America's only good Russian community has turned into a gay parade. *shrugs*

    I've been to Brighton Beach twice. It's a small section of Brooklyn. What to expect:

    Lot's of Russians
    Most of the signs on the stores are in Russian
    There were a few Russian book/cd/video/dvd stores
    Pretty hard to find parking
    I wasn't looking (I'm hetrosexual) but saw no gays

    Brighton Beach Avenue is where I spent most of my time.

    Have fun,
    Scott

    Do I have to explain what is wrong with this statement?

    Oh shiat... gawd, I can't even believe what I'm about to say...

    maybe you should look... harder?

    Oh gawd, I need to take a sponge bath now. Dirty dirty dirty monster.
    Call to a hardware store: "I'm sure you know more about the caulk than I do...tell me...is there a taste to the caulk?".
