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.

Chart With Loan Options
Since the CARES Act was passed, U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) Loan Options Pursuant to The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) and Legislation have been detailed for the nation’s businesses. NYSH&TA’s legal/lobby counsel created a chart to more easily break down the options for our members. Highlights in this format on the new loan availability might help to clear up some confusion.

CARES Act Overview: Who is eligible and what are the exceptions?
Which businesses will be eligible for relief under the CARES Act? Under Title I of the CARES Act (“Keeping American Workers Employed and Paid”), qualifying businesses that have suffered significant disruption as a result of COVID-19 will be able to receive no-fee “small business interruption loans.” Qualifying small businesses include “any business concern, nonprofit organization, veteran’s organization, or Tribal business” that have fewer than 500 employees, whether employed on a full-time, part-time, or other basis. Click here for an overview developed by NYSH&TA legal/lobby counsel Greenberg Traurig.

Paycheck Protection Program and Hotel/Restaurant Eligibility
You are eligible for a loan if you are a small business that employs 500 employees or fewer, or if your business is in an industry that has an employee-based size standard through SBA that is higher than 500 employees. In addition, if you are a restaurant, hotel, or a business that falls within the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code 72, “Accommodation and Food Services,” and each of your locations has 500 employees or fewer, you are eligibleClick here for details.
