Brighton Beach is a multi-ethnic community on Coney Island in the New York City Borough of Brooklyn. Many residents are Ukrainians from Odessa, and for this reason the area has been nicknamed "Little Odessa" by the local community. The film Little Odessa (1994) is set in Brighton Beach. There are also many Russian, Georgian, Polish, Turkish and Pakistani residents in the area. It is therefore not surprising that an open air chess game should be seen here.
