Fun Facts and History of Gravesend

Not only is Gravesend one of the first Dutch settlements in the New Netherlands, it’s also the only settlement that was founded by a woman. Lady Deborah Moody, her and her followers having been excommunicated for being Anabaptists, were sold the land and founded the Town of Gravesend.

Gravesend became several farms and a suburban haven for the people of Kings County. However, with the sudden popularity of Sheepshead Bay, then part of Gravesend, the town decided to become more of a resort community, building race tracks and many hotels. Gravesend became part of Brooklyn in 1894 and part of the larger New York City in 1898.

The racetracks of Gravesend had to close in 1910 due to New York outlawing horse races. Coney Island then took most of the business Gravesend came to enjoy. By the 1990’s, the neighborhood found its residential glory once again, and is now a popular neighborhood for upscale residents.

Gravesend Buildings

Gravesend has a little bit of everything, but the talk of the town are the large, single family houses that line the streets here. Taller buildings, like mid to high rise apartment complexes, dot the area, especially by the water.

Atmosphere of Gravesend
