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.
