Bensonhurst boundaries include: Gravesend to the southeast, Midwood to the east, Dyker Heights to the west and Borough Park to the north. The name Bensonhurst comes from Arthur W. Benson, the former President of Brooklyn Gas who bought much of the land in the mid 1800’s – it was all farmland at the time. He divided it into generous lots which now represent many of the surrounding Brooklyn neighborhoods.
This highly diverse community features 18th Avenue as one of it’s main streets. Small Italian owned businesses still dominate this street, many of them handed down through generations of Bensonhurst residents. 86th Street is also a main, commercial venue that featured the elevated BMT West End Subway Line.
Bensonhurst’s long and storied history is on display in its buildings and landmarks. Lenny’s Pizza from the movie “Saturday Night Fever” still stands tall. A large park with sports fields and playgrounds serves the community, and local farmers are showcased in the Bensonhurst Greenmarket, where residents can find fresh produce and fun community-minded events.
Late summer each year people from all over the northeast flock to “The Feast”, the Festa di Santa Rasalia and enjoy fabulous Italian food, music and festivities.
