Neighborhood Character- Bensonhurst
Along Cristoforo Columbo Boulevard Bensonhurst's 18th Avenue,
between 68th and 77th Streets Italian shops entice passersby with
fresh pastries, pasta, and focaccia. There are large pizza parlors,
more reminiscent of Brooklyn than Italy, and small local social clubs,
more evocative of Italy than Brooklyn, where Italian men gather to
drink espresso, play cards, and trade memories of their hometowns.
Although Bensonhurst includes families of many different ethnicities
in particular, those of Greek, Korean, Israeli, Polish, Arab, and
Russian descent as well as African Americans, it is best known for
the Italian traditions and cuisine that give the neighborhood its unique
Bensonhurst was settled as a small section of New Utrecht, one of the
six original towns of Brooklyn. (When New Utrecht was annexed to
the City of Brooklyn in 1894, it lost its identity; now New Utrecht is
considered a small section of Bensonhurst whose name is kept alive
by the New Utrecht branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, the New
Utrecht Reformed Church, and New Utrecht High School.) The area
was primarily used for farming and had fewer than 4,000 residents
until the Brooklyn, Bath, and West End Railroad was built in 1885.
Soon thereafter, developer James Lynch bought large parcels of land
from members of the Benson family to build his suburb.
Bensonhurst-by-the-Sea. Within the development's 350 acres land
that stretched from 20th Avenue on the west to 23rd Avenue on the
east and from 78th Street on the north to Gravesend Bay on the south
Lynch built villas for a thousand families and planted 5,000 shade
The park like setting of Bensonhurst-by-the-Sea, as well as its
proximity to Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn, enticed middleclass families; wealthier weekend visitors were attracted by upscale
sailing facilities at Bensonhurst Yacht Club and the Atlantic Yacht
Club until at least 1894, when the area was annexed to the City of
Brooklyn, Bensonhurst retained an expansive, suburban charm. At
that time, there were still fewer than 10,000 residents.

Neighborhood Character- Bensonhurst
In 1915 the 4th Avenue subway line reached Bensonhurst, which had
shortened its name that same year when it lost its status as a “gated”
community. Subways cars ran along the former Sea Beach and West End
steam railway tracks and brought many new residents in the area.
Seemingly overnight, two- and three-family homes were built, and by the
1920s new walk-up apartment buildings with four to six stories were
appearing each week. Italian American and Jewish residents from
Manhattan's Lower East Side discovered Bensonhurst during this period,
adding to the population boom. By 1930 Bensonhurst had almost 150,000
After World War II, Bensonhurst's residential growth continued. In 1949
Fred Trump (father of Donald) built the Shore Haven Apartments at 21st
Avenue near the Belt Parkway. In its day, the 5,000 apartment complex
was the largest private housing development in Brooklyn. Originally part
of Bensonhurst-by-the-Sea, it now falls within the boundaries of Bath
In the 1950s Bensonhurst was transformed by the arrival of thousands of
immigrants from southern Italy. These new arrivals worked hard to
establish prosperous businesses and bring over other family members,
many of whom have continued to live in the same blocks of Bensonhurst
for generations. By 1980 nearly 80 percent of the area's residents were of
Italian descent, making the neighborhood one of the most homogeneous in
New York City. Neighborhood houses, which are mostly one and twofamily semi-attached brick, stucco, and stone-faced buildings, sport
vegetable gardens, grape arbors, and fig trees in their back yards and are
decorated in the front by distinctive wrought-iron fences.
In recent years, in addition to these traditional groups, there has been a
large influx of Russian and Chinese immigrants. There are also immigrants
from the Eastern European and Middle Eastern countries as well as from
Pakistan and Mexico. This is a residential area with private homes and
small apartment buildings, small businesses, professional offices,
community centers, religious institutions and many public and private
There has been a lot of condominium construction in the area. This has
increased the number of owner/residents which is one of the most
stabilizing factors in any community.
