Nicknamed “Little Odessa” by the local Russian-speaking immigrants from Odessa, a city in Ukraine, Brighton Beach is a home away from home for Russian Americans. An ocean side neighborhood in the NYC borough of Brooklyn and a summer destination for NY residents due to its beaches along the Atlantic Ocean, Brighton Beach is a Jewish immigrant’s idea of what an American’s idea of Russia may be.
