Sheepshead Bay is a neighborhood in the deep south — Brooklyn's deep south that is. It sits just north of Brighton Beach and has a feeling of half-suburb, half-ocean town. The neighborhood hasn't really changed that much in the past half-century.

This photo, taken by an unknown photographer around 1955, looks very similar to how it appears today, minus the vintage cars and trolly.
