Bay Parkway in Bensonhurst

Bay Parkway is a street that cuts through a major part of the New York City borough of Brooklyn. It starts at Ocean Parkway and continues southwesterly to Bath Beach, Bensonhurst Park, Shore Parkway, and Caesar's Bay shopping plaza on Gravesend Bay. It runs through Bensonhurst and is four lanes wide throughout its route. Along Bay Parkway are many Chinese, Russian and Italian-American businesses as well as many residential buildings and co-ops. Bay Parkway was known as 22nd Avenue until the 1930s, when the name was changed to facilitate large-scale apartment-type residential development. The B6 and B82 bus lines serve Bay Parkway throughout most of its stretch.

Bay Parkway has three New York City Subway stops:
