    "We’ve lived here for seven years now, and honestly I can’t picture living anywhere else in the city. The neighborhood is clean, quiet, and you get that small town feel with all the big city convenience. Multiple public transportation options, lots of parks, and excellent shopping. In Bensonhurst you just can’t go wrong."

    "A lot of the dog owners are not friendly like in other neighborhoods where you can pretty much strike up a conversation with them. A lot of the population culturally doesn’t like dogs so many of them will be afraid of the dogs and literally jump out of the way in fear. To dog owners this is disheartening because how can you be afraid of such beautiful creatures. "
