In southern Brooklyn, the affluent neighborhood of Gravesend has become quite popular among upper-class professionals in recent years. The area was originally settled by the English, and Henry Hudson was the first known European to arrive in the neighborhood. Amidst numerous Dutch towns, this neighborhood was the only English settlement, in addition to being the only New World town founded by a woman, Lady Deborah Moody. The community has changed dramatically throughout the years and today has much to offer prospective homebuyers, including access to several vibrant shopping districts. These shopping districts offer cafes, diners, and a wide variety of restaurants, including local favorites like L and B Pizza’s Spumoni Gardens.
Gravesend real estate is also in proximity to several parks, such as Scarangella Park, William Kelly Memorial Park, and Jim Franco Field. The seventeen-and-a-half acre Bensonhurst Park is also only minutes away from real estate in Gravesend, as is Bensonhurst’s Seth Low Park. Furthermore, just south of the neighborhood are the shorefront neighborhoods of Brighton Beach and Coney Island, both offering a vast array of multi-ethnic restaurants, dozens of amusements, and miles of sandy beaches. Beyond all of these desirable features, Gravesend and the neighboring communities also host many exciting events, festivals, and celebrations each year. Among the locals’ favorites are the Feast of Padre Pio, the annual feast honoring St. Rosalia, and the annual Ragamuffin Parade.
