Seagate, Brooklyn was built at the far western end of Coney Island at the southern tip of Brooklyn. It is a private, gated community containing mostly single family homes, some directly on Gravesend Bay. It is regularly patroled by the Seagate Police Department, though the New York Police Department has jurisdiction over it.
