One of Bayswater's early developers was William Trist Bailey, hence the street names Bailey Court and Trist Place, who had purchased the property and laid out the community c. 1878. Once the location of a number of summer hotels such as the Elstone Park and the Sunset Lodge, Bayswater is now a year-round residential neighborhood. Bayswater has a diverse population with large numbers of Black and Orthodox Jewish residents. The Bayswater Civic Association represents the area.
