Brown Harris Stevens | Bold Honest Smart


Flatlands is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. The area is part of Brooklyn Community Board 18. One of the original five Dutch towns on Long Island (given the right to local rule by Peter Stuyvesant in 1661), this neighborhood was originally known as Nieuw Amersfoort, after the Dutch city of Amersfoort, but the name was changed to "Flatlands" after the British captured the area (future Kings County) from the Dutch in 1664. The area may have been settled by French Walloons as early as 1623, and by native Lenape Native Americans long before that.
