Brown Harris Stevens | Established 1837



There is chatter about Gravesend actual borders given that some believe it runs from Bay Parkway and Avenue P on the north, Ocean Parkway (a thoroughfare designed by Frederick Law Olmsted) to the east and the Shore Belt Parkway on the south, while others describe its borders lying between Coney Island Avenue to the east, Stillwell Avenue to the West, Kings Highway to the north and Coney Island Creek and Shore Parkway to the northeast in the south. Any way you slice it, this postcard-pretty section of south-central Brooklyn, Gravesend's history dates back to Colonial times.

A featured amenity, Gravesend Park offers multiple ball courts (including tennis), playgrounds, a fitness center, spray showers and a roller hockey rink.

Housing Stock: One- and two-family homes, Spanish-style red and tan brick mansions, pricey grand-style single family homes with expansive porches and lush landscaping (mostly along Avenues T and Ocean Parkway), brick single-family houses and covered porches, pre- and post-war co-ops and condo apartment buildings.
