Manhattan Beach is a residential area in Brooklyn, one of the boroughs of New York. It is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean in the south and east, in the north it borders Sheepshead Bay, and Brighton Beach in the west. Traditionally known as the region of residence of Italians and Ashkenazi Jews, there are also many Sephardic Jews living there.
