Making Kings Highway a better place to work, shop, and visit.

One of Brooklyn’s premier shopping districts, the Kings Highway BID serves 225 businesses on 25 blocks between Ocean Avenue and Ocean Parkway, including part of Quentin Road, from Coney Island Avenue to East 13th Street. This stretch of Kings Highway is unique, a “regional commercial center” in a sea of dense residential development.

Neighborhood History

In many ways, Kings Highway is the mother of Brooklyn’s major thoroughfares. Reputedly named after King George III — the British monarch who ruled during the American Revolution — the roots of Kings Highway predate even the first Dutch colonists.
