If my recollection is correct, Gerritsen Beach, by-and-large, has a somewhat suburban-like ambience to it.

It's okay

I agree with Gerritsen Beach, although I use to think of it as a subsection of Marine Park.

Sheepshead Bay has attracted Russian-speaking immigrants since the early 90s, due to spillover of Soviet Jews from Brighton Beach, and then other types of Russian immigration. Many of the bars and restaurants cater to this crowd.

Not just Russians/Jews, but also Ukrainians, Turks, and Central Asians from the -stans.

I left the Bay in '93, but I still go back. It's quite different but it's still not a bad neighborhood.

Which place? When I use to live in Brooklyn I frequented many cheap, but decent sushi restaurants. Those places seem to exist mostly in southern Brooklyn.

Thanks for the suggestions. Looks fancier than the places that I use to go to in Brooklyn.
