Gravesend is nestled in southern Brooklyn and is home to many upper-class professionals. The first known European who set foot in this neighborhood was Henry Hudson, but the area was settled by the English. Although it was the only English settlement among Dutch towns, it was also the only town in the New World that was founded by a woman, Lady Deborah Moody.
The Gravesend home market has changed drastically throughout the years. The nabe consists of mainly of 2- and 3-story houses, but the condos are a close second. This area’s real estate prices have increased dramatically, with homes in Gravesend going for nearly double what homes of the same stature are selling for in other neighborhoods.
The shopping districts also offer a selection of restaurants, diners, and cafes. One neighborhood favorite is L&B Pizza’s “Spumoni Gardens”, an excellent pizza shop with an outdoor seating area, which is very popular with Little League players after a tough game of baseball on the fields nearby. Gravesend residents enjoy several parades and special events throughout the year. Next-door Bensonhurst features the annual feastin honor of St. Rosalia, one of the patron saints of Sicily, and the Feast of Padre Pio, another important Catholic figure. Nearby Bay Ridge features the annual “Ragamuffin Parade”, a unique freestyle event that showcases the talents of over 3,000 Brooklyn kids. Gravesend’s parks include the Jim Franco Field, William Kelly Memorial Park, and Scarangella Park. Bensonhurst’s Seth Low Park and the 17.5-acre Bensonhurst Park (with sports equipment and a safety-enhanced playground) are located only a few minutes away. Just south of Gravesend, the shorefront communities of Coney Island and Brighton Beach offer miles of sandy beaches, dozens of amusements, and a selection of multi-ethnic restaurants and shops
