Bath Beach is often times included in the community of Bensonhurst, however, it is separated from that community by 86th Street on the north. It is comprised of one and two-family semi-attached brick, stucco and stone properties with gardens and backyards.
Bath Beach once described the beach resort specifically as part of the community of Bath, New York. Bath and Bath Beach are now more or less synonymous. The actual beach was paved over to create the Belt Parkway, which barricades Bath Beach from Gravesend Bay. The neighborhood contains a wide variety of small mom-and-pop businesses and has few chain stores.
