86th Street (Brooklyn)

Even 5 or 6 years ago you would still definitely call Bensonhurst Italian, with some Russians and Chinese also. When I walk down the eastern part of 86th street now it's pretty much indistinguishable from Brighton Beach Avenue, complete with elevated train running above. Italian businesses seem more like vestiges now. The best key lime pie I ever ate was from 86th street, but I think the bakery is gone now.

Neighborhood: Bensonhurst, Bath Beach. Tracts walked: B278, B284, B288, B290, B296, B298
