For those who live in Sea Gate, Brooklyn NY, a private gated community at the far western end of Coney Island, with four and a half miles of winding tree lined roads, the beach is the biggest magnet. The farthest that a Sea Gate resident needs to walk to get to the beach is three to four blocks and there is never a problem of where to put your blanket. Sea Gate is surrounded on three sides by water with private beaches. In addition to the private beaches, there are two parks: A playground with a basketball court next to Sea Gate Community Center on Surf Avenue and Beach Reservation which extends before and beyond Norton’s Point and consists of a sandy/grassy patch of land with views of Lower New York Harbor and The Verrazano Bridge. There is also The Sea Gate Beach Club, a popular summertime spot for many families. The club is located on one of the only private beaches in Brooklyn, past the private gated entrance to the community. Summer memberships are available. There is an Olympic sized pool, private beach and private cabanas. Chairs and towels are provided so that you can just come and relax.
