Bath Beach Neighborhood Guide

Don't be fooled by the name - Bath Beach doesn't actually have a beach. This community of just under 30,000 people did once have a beach, but it was paved over in the mid-1900s in order to build the Shore Parkway. However, a promenade on the northwestern side of the neighborhood gives residents access to a beautiful sea wall, and the southern part of the neighborhood features the incredible Bensonhust Park, complete with ballfields. This quiet, residential neighborhood has more greenery and more trees than most areas of Brooklyn.

Architecture and landmarks

The housing market in Bath Beach is primarily made up of one- and two-family brick homes or frame houses, though there are a handful of three- and four-family homes. There are fewer homes on each block than surrounding neighborhoods, and more trees and greenery. Residents pride themselves on keeping up their homes and landscaping. Construction is ongoing in Bath Beach, with smaller homes being knocked down to make way for larger homes, and larger homes being converted to three-family homes. There is also a wide range of rentals, co-ops, and condos, including the Shore Haven Apartments with more than 1,300 units.
