Bensonhurst

Southwest Brooklyn is home to one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the entire city: Bensonhurst

Second only to Washington Heights in terms of the percentage of residents who were born abroad, Bensonhurst has over 77,000 foreign-born residents. Egbert Benson, a well-known Brooklyn landowner and politician, received the neighborhood’s name. Bensonhurst-by-the-Sea, or what is now Bath Beach, was the area’s original name; however, it quickly transformed into a Jewish and Italian enclave. The area has preserved much of its historical character and is now known as Little Italy and Brooklyn’s largest Chinatown. The area has welcomed some well-known residents and also contains some unexpected hidden gems. The top ten secrets of Bensonhurst are listed below.

A pop culture-inspired game The Statue House in Bensonhurst The Bensonhurst Statue House, a surprising residence with nearly 40 life-size sculptures of pop culture icons, is situated halfway down 85th Street between 20th and 21st Avenues. These figures include Superman flying out from a second-story balcony, the Statue of Liberty, Marilyn Monroe and Elvis flirting, James Dean staring at Humphrey Bogart, and Dracula peeking out from above the garage. There are numerous relics from the mid-1900s, including an old phone booth, Brooklyn Bridge street signs, an antiquated lamppost that reads “Memory Lane,” and more. The statue house was created by Steve Campanella, a retired Marine who drew inspiration from his youth and his strong Brooklyn pride. The garage and driveway were created to resemble the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel’s approach. The next town we service
