Fun Facts and History of Southern Brooklyn

Gravesend was one of the original Dutch settlements of New Amsterdam. From Gravesend sprouted Coney Island, Sheepshead Bay, and Brighton Beach as leadership acquired more and more land. Once the Dutch lost control of the colony in 1664, the British used the area for Naval bases and landings, especially during the American Revolution.

After the Revolution, Coney Island underwent massive changes. Landfills were used to connect the islands to form one, large island, which was then connected with the larger mainland in the early 1800’s. From there, Southern Brooklyn became the spot for entertainment. Sheepshead Bay was mostly residential, but Gravesend became a gambling capital once race tracks were built, and Coney Island and Brighton Beach were building resorts left and right.

The neighborhoods fell into ruin during several financial crises of the 1900’s. Businesses closed and many attractions fell into disrepair. In the 1990’s the neighborhoods got major facelifts. Gravesend and Sheepshead Bay became havens for immigrants while Coney Island and Brighton Beach polished the looks of their beaches and resorts. Today Southern Brooklyn is a mix of peaceful neighborhoods and epic adventures.
