A division of the south-western aka safe parts of the borough Brooklyn. Home to many Italians as well as Chinese, and Jews...however it is NOT to be mistaken with its bordering neighborhood Borough Park aka "Jewville" to the north. Though Bensonhurst at one time was predominantly white, many chinese took over when a lot of the whites left for Staten Island or New Jersey. If you live in Bensonhurst you are most likely familiar with the N and D trains. Chances are if you live in Bensonhurst you will be known among the general public eye and get stared at at the worst. You won't have to worry about being shot or raped there like you would in north-eastern Brooklyn. If you see a black or hispanic person in Bensonhurst, the chances are they do not live there or should not be there.
What are these niggers doing here?! This is BENSONHURST!....not Crown Heights!
I'm so sick of hearing this ridiculous shit that Italian people "aren't white"
NEVER BEFORE have I heard this before I came to this site and saw these ridiculously stupid definitions
ITALIAN PEOPLE ARE INDEED WHITE! EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT!
I'm Italian and I'm light skinned, and damn proud of it!
And no, I most certainly do NOT fit the horrible Italian-American stereotype.
The only reason the douche bag guidos are tanned is because THEY'RE FAKE TANS!
IF YOU'RE ITALIAN, YOU'RE WHITE, SO BE HAPPY
Irish Man: I'm white! go me!
Italian Man: Me too! go US!
Irish and Italian Man: WE ROCK!
