About us

Welcome to Sea Gate!

For more than 100 years, the waterfront community of Sea Gate, Brooklyn has had a front row seat to the New York Harbor where cruise ships, sail boats and the occasional mermaid routinely pass by.
Sea Gate, once known as Norton’s Point, was originally incorporated in 1899. A private, gated community adjoining Brooklyn’s bustling Coney Island boardwalk, Sea Gate was a summer retreat for families like the Morgans, Dodges and Vanderbuilts. Boasting the Atlantic Yacht Club from 1898 until it burned down in 1933, Sea Gate was an ideal location to spend a peaceful, breezy summer.
Currently, with about 8,000 full-time residents, Sea Gate is filled with gilded-age mansions designed by Stanford White, mid-size, sleek condos, and everything in-between.

Parks & Beaches


While the year-round private beach is the main attraction, the Sea Gate Community offers two resident-only Playgrounds and a dog park.
The David Sevush Playground, dedicated to David Sevush, Board Member and contributor to the Sea Gate Community Baseball League and youth activity programs, is located within the Parking Lot between Surf and Mermaid Avenues. Norma Sevush, David’s wife, was the Community Manager for almost a decade. This playground boasts a jungle gym space for smaller children, a swing set, a work out space, and a fenced area with a gazebo where the children of Sea Gate can learn to ride a bike or scooter, play ball, draw with chalk on a small scale. The playground also offers a basketball court for the older Sea Gate Resident children. We ask that everyone be respectful, take turns and be safe.


The Sea Gate Community has a wonderfully restored private beach, thanks to the USACE and DEC who built T-Groins and replenished some of the sand lost in Sandy and over the years. The T-Groins will mitigate the loss of sand and protect the Community residences and surrounding areas from excessive damage from wave surges in the future. The Sea Gate Community also hopes to have all of its bulkheads restored by winter 2017 to bring additional mitigation.
This, resident-only, beach is open year-round but will require a beach pass from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
Swimming is only permitted when a lifeguard is present during the Summer Season.
