Bay Ridge and Fort Hamilton represent two adjoining neighborhoods just southeast of Manhattan in the borough of Brooklyn. Lying about 16 miles outside the city, this area presents singles, professionals and families proximity to all New York City can offer, while still retaining a simpler and quieter quality of life.

The neighborhood also houses Fort Hamilton, a base headquartered by the Military District of Washington. This outpost serves to provide the Army National Guard and U.S. Army Reserve support, and many military families live in the area.

History

Bay Ridge (originally called Yellow Hook) and Fort Hamilton were originally settled by the Dutch, but began to develop in the 1830s as a resort for visitors to the army base.

In the 19th century, Yellow Hook was struck by Yellow Fever, and the town’s name changed to Bay Ridge to avoid association with the deadly disease. During this time, many Norwegian and Danish sailors moved to the neighborhood, joining Irish and Italian residents.

Over time, Greek, Russian, Polish, Lebanese, Middle Eastern, Arabic and Chinese people moved into the Bay Ridge-Fort Hamilton area, making it very diverse.

Bay Ridge and Fort Hamilton support no museums and one art gallery, Polizzi Fine Art. Beyond Dance and Dimensions On Stage are two performing arts schools/groups in the area, offering periodic student shows.
