Great Kills

HISTORY

Great Kills located on the South shore of Staten Island is the south shore’s most northern community. In the early 1600’s Dutch immigrants settled into areas of Great Kills. By the late 19th century the former areas were incorporated and given the name of Great Kills. This was done by changing the non-English Dutch name into a name using the English sounds. The original name was Groote Kell and translates too many creeks. Giffords Lane a local main Street was named after Daniel Gifford a local surveyor and commissioner. The street was originally named Giffords and Giffords Glen. Great Kills is located relatively close to the water and the local residents utilized the many resources and amenities this town had to offer. They would fish and harvest oysters and crabs. Today a fishing area named Crooks Point is a popular recreational fishing area which many anglers enjoy. The fishing area was named after its original owner John J Crooke a pioneering naturalist and business man who purchased it in 1860. Then in 1929 the city of New York purchased it again along with the surrounding area. In 1949 a park was opened, then in 1973 the area became a National Park. Today it is known as Gateway National Park and recreational Area and has 580 acres of beautiful open natural space.
