Bensonhurst/Bath Beach at a Glance
In Brooklyn, Bensonhurst means community – a quiet neighborhood filled with families. Once well known as the borough’s ‘Little Italy,’ recently, a report on city housing and neighborhoods by NYU’s Furman Center named Bensonhurst the most racially diverse neighborhood in New York City. There are many small businesses on Belt Parkway, 18th Avenue, and 86th Street. Bath Beach, Bensonhurst’s slightly smaller sister neighborhood, shares a vibrant commercial thoroughfare along 86th Street and a similar profile of residential homes and low-rise apartment buildings. The area is serviced by the D and N trains, as well as, several bus lines that run throughout Brooklyn.
