Welcome to The Gravesend Gazette: Historical News From Southern Brooklyn, a blog of occasional pieces on my favorite topic, Gravesend, Brooklyn, New York. By no means do I claim to be the expert on Gravesend, but I have been obsessed with learning about the history of this neighborhood since childhood, and to that end have amassed a sizable collection of images, documents, and information which it is now my pleasure to share and write about. I welcome comments and stories from fellow and former residents. Let me hear from you!
