Bay Street in Botany is a long street that stretches over two suburbs in Sydney. The street gains its name from its original contruction where it lead to Botany Bay. This access is now blocked by a large storm water pipe. Botany was once a working class suburb which has now been engulfed by the expanding wealth of home buyers. Like most Sydney streets there is a large variety of architecture using brick and weatherboard. The streets are lined by electricity poles and developed foliage.
