Gerritsen Beach, part of the original town of Gravesend Brooklyn New York has the allure of a quaint New England Fishing town. Gerritsen Beach is a self-contained peninsula. The area, named for Wolfert Gerritsen (a 17th-century settler), was mostly marshland until around 1920, and the development of the summer homes began. In 1923, a creek was dredged to form Shell Bank Canal, which divides the peninsula into old and new sections. This beautiful community with its narrow streets and waterside houses remains one of Brooklyn New York's Sea side secrets.
