Anyone have any info on Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn? Is it a cool area to live? How long does it take to get to downtown Manhattan using the subway?

Mostly an upscale area about 0.5-1mile from Brighton Beach (Brighton Beach station on B and Q lines). The area is known for huge, expensive mansions some costing 2-3 mil. There are several apartment buildings (mostly coops) close to Shepshead Bay canal and on the edge of Brighton Beach avenue. It would take you 10-15 min to walk to Brighton Beach avenue station. From there, B express would get you into Midtown Manhattan in about 40-50 min.

Thats a long commute. Notice he said B express. thats weekdays business hours. late nights and weekends, you are on the local train and add yourself another 20 minutes to a half hour
