In the southwestern part of Brooklyn, in the one-and-only New York City, the large, multiethnic neighborhood of Bensonhurst is sometimes referred to as Little Italy because of its significant Italian-American population. That said, the neighborhood has more Chinese-born residents than any other New York City neighborhood and has become Brooklyn’s second Chinatown. Additionally, more than half of its residents were born outside of the United States, so if you are seeking a home in a diverse community, look no further. Bensonhurst is bounded on the north by 60th Street Borough Park, on the south and southwest by 16th Avenue Bath Beach and 86th Street, on the east and northeast by Avenue N Midwood and McDonald Avenue, and on the west by Dyker Heights and 14th Avenue.
Bensonhurst has a charming old Brooklyn feel and is often depicted in movies as a working-class community. However, the neighborhood has changed a lot since the 1970s’ rough-and-tumble era. While you won’t find droves of hipsters or fancy high-rise condos in Bensonhurst, you will find a long list of fabulous businesses such as the famed Villabate Alba bakery, Tony Manero’s pizza place, and The Pasticceria. Bath Beach, Gravesend, Midwood, Borough Park, and Dyker Heights all border Bensonhurst, multiplying the availability of services, amenities, and attractions. In addition to these desirable features, Bensonhurst has a cost-of-living lower than many other Brooklyn neighborhoods, its schools are good, and it encompasses multiple D Train stops.
