What was posted here before was completely incorrect Beathalor is saying that you need to learn on a 250cc bike. I being an average sized guy started riding sport bikes on a 600cc R6 which is a good starter bike for a average sized person. Most women I have seen riding prefer the seat height and feel of either a 600cc GSXR or the 636 Ninja which has an even lower seat height. I advise against a inexperienced rider going out and buying a 1000cc liter bike that is just stupid, about as stupid as a 250 pound man buying a 250cc Ninja as some on here seem to think. Remember a bike is only as fast or powerful as you make it they don't go unless you twist the throttle. As long as your comfortable, can touch the ground flat footed and are physically able to hold up the bike you will be happy having a 600cc bike to grow into.

What brand of bike would be good for a beginner looking to ride around the neighborhood?

For casual riding like that anything goes. Department store bikes would be OK, but if something would break don't expect much help from the store, even if the bike is still under warranty. Better then to try to find a deal from your local bike shop, maybe a used trade-in or something.

What is a good beginner fixie bike?

If you haven't ridden a bike before at all I'd suggest that you don't start with a fixie. If you already know how to ride, and want to take up fixie riding, then go for a bike with front + rear brakes and good pedal-to-ground clearance(=short cranks).
