Sheepshead Bay

The fishing culture of Sheepshead Bay started in the late 1800s and continues today.
Sheepshead Bay has experienced a revival in recent years, starting in 1995 with the reopening of historical restaurant Lundy’s.  New immigrants to the area - Asians, Russians, Turks, Pakistanis, Indians, and Middle Easterners - are adding new life to the commercial districts.  New cafes, restaurants, and shopping centers are popping up in the neighborhood.  There are also many new housing developments in the area and housing prices are increasing.
The well-attended BayFest on Emmons Avenue is a lively annual event that includes live music, a parade of historical sailboats, and raffles.
