Marine Drive 6/2012

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Planned after a land reclamation project in the early 20th century, Marine Drive curves along the shore of the Arabian Sea from Churchgate to Chowpatty Beach and Malabar Hill. It is Bombay's famous corniche and one of the city's most exclusive addresses. Its location on the western shore of the peninsula of Bombay provides it with some breathtaking sunsets which local singles, families and lovers seem to enjoy in clement weather. The elegant boulevard is lined with palm trees and some beautiful, art Déco residential buildings from the 1920s and 30s built after the land reclamation project was completed. Marine Drive was officially replaced with a longer local name, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Road.
