"Diverse,safe and fairly friendly"

Most people are friendly,while others are slow to warm up,but once they have run into you on several occasions feel more relaxed.I love the diversity, but wish there were more Italian restaurants.Love that my favorite bargain Dept store,Telco,is nearby.It does have that small town atmosphere as many people have lived here for years.Now,if only I could meet a nice middle age guy.
  • Great shopping
  • Increasingly diversified population
  • Quiet & safe
  • Overpriced housing

"Tourist attraction for lovers of the Mafia"

Besonhurst is so far from the city (“the city” being how Manhattan is often referred to) that tourists are pretty unlikely to ever be in the vicinity, unless they pass through it on their way to Coney Island. You may have heard of it as being Brooklyn’s Little Italy, and a famous car bomb intended for John Gotti once exploded there. The one tourist attraction that the neighborhood does boast is the Santa Rosalia Festival, which is also called the Feast by residents. It takes place at the end of each summer, usually either late in August or early in September.
