Brighton Beach
Again, really not so bad! The beaches in Kings County were actually ranked the second cleanest in the entire state, with a relatively low 5 percent rate of water samples taken that exceeded "daily maximum bacterial standard." A measuring station at the border of Brighton and Coney warranted a rating of 4 out of 5 stars, and a bit further down between 15th and 6th St., the area garnered a still-respectable 3 star rating, and zero percent of samples taken exhibited dangerous or illegal levels of contamination.
