Neighborhood Description

Named for the town of Bath, England, Bath Beach may have once been hailed as a resort town, though its buildings and homes in no way resemble Bath’s own Georgian architecture.

Due in part to the construction of the Shore Parkway, this Brooklyn neighborhood no longer has an actual beach, and the area has evolved over to years into a predominantly residential neighborhood. It is bordered by 86th Street, its main commercial hub, to the north, Shore Parkway to the south, Bay Parkway to the east, and 14th Avenue to the west. Although unknown to many, this neighborhood was actually made famous when the commercial strip on 86th street was featured in scenes from the 1971 movie The French Connection, in the opening credits of the popular television show Welcome Back, Kotter, and, perhaps most famously, in the opening scene of the 1977 movie Saturday Night Fever, starring John Travolta.

These days, Bath Beach is home to an increasingly diverse community of residents, many of whom are of Chinese, Hispanic, Arabic and Russian descent, adding to the neighborhood’s long-established Italian-American community. Housing in this neighborhood is predominantly comprised of one-or two-family brick homes, with some three-or four-family co-ops and condominiums thrown into the mix. With fewer houses per block than its neighboring Bensonhurst, Bath Beach can be seen as a greener and more spacious alternative to the overcrowded living one frequently encounters in densely populated urban areas.

Served by the D and M subway lines, Bath Beach’s amenities include the 20- acre Bensonhurst Park, a waterfront walkway and the New Utrecht branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. A nearby shopping center at Bay Parkway and Shore Parkway features a number of large chain stores such as Kmart and Toys 'R' Us. Perhaps one of the most unique features of this neighborhood lies in the manner in which the one-way northeast/southwest cross-streets are numbered. In order to distinguish these streets from similarly numbered ones in Brooklyn, the word "Bay" precedes each street number, from Bay 7th Street in the northwest through Bay 50th Street in the southeast.
