Ocean Avenue is a major north/south route in Brooklyn. It begins at Emmons Avenue by Sheepshead Bay, just south of the Belt Parkway, and runs north to the southeast corner of Prospect Park. It continues north along the edge of the park for about half a mile and ends at Flatbush Avenue. Contrary to what its name implies, Ocean Avenue does not lead to the Atlantic Ocean, although its southern end is about half a mile from it.
