    Beautiful walk down Brighton Beach and Coney Island

    You should be standing on the corner of Brighton Beach Avenue and Brighton 6th Street. In front of you, 6th Street makes its way towards the sea. Behind you is the overpass and the rest of Brooklyn. You should be on the right sidewalk.

    Hi, my name is Gabriella Krichevsky. My family is from the Ukraine, and this area is a special part of city for me. I can’t wait to take you on a peaceful walk through through a place where time stopped and the Soviet Union decided to park its car.

    So let's get going. Start walking straight up the street now, towards the beach. As you go, I'll explain how this works. VoiceMap uses your location to play commentary automatically, so you can now put your phone away and focus on your surroundings. Silence between tracks is normal, so if you don't hear from me, just keep going and I'll catch up with you soon. If you get lost or stuck, you can look at the route map on your phone's screen.

    As you're going, keep focused on the stores on both sides of the street. You can probably see the types of small cafes, beauty studios and outlets that characterize the quiet charms of this out-the-way neighborhood. Brighton Beach is also known as Little Odessa, which is often called Little Russia. Little Russia has a lot of character and delicious food. This walk is great to do any time of the day, which is one of the reasons I want to share it.

    So leave the city behind and breathe in the sea air. I'll meet you a bit further along at the next side street.
