Bergen Beach Apartments

If living in New York City but far from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis sounds appealing to you, Bergen Beach just might be your dream realized.

Situated along the shoreline of Jamaica Bay in southeast Brooklyn, this small enclave—once isolated as an island off Canarsie—was connected to the mainland by a landfill in the early 1900’s. Bergen Beach can be best described as a quiet residential neighborhood that is more suburb than city.

Named after the descendants of Hans Hansen Bergen, a 17th-century Dutch settler, this small community is characterized by tree-lined streets and semi-attached homes, most of which have the benefit of private driveways and garages. Because of the absence of subway lines, Bergen Beach can feel detached from the rest of the city. As with any suburban neighborhood, its residents rely on their cars for transportation, but can also commute via the B3 bus and the B41 bus to the subway station at Flatbush Junction and to Downtown Brooklyn. Additionally, the BM1 express bus, which stops in nearby Mill Basin, will get you to Midtown Manhattan in just under an hour.
