Sea Gate is a private, gated community that was built at the far western end of Coney Island at the southern tip of the New York City borough of Brooklyn. It contains mostly single family homes, some directly on Gravesend Bay. It is regularly patrolled by the Sea Gate Police Department, though the New York City Police Department has jurisdiction over it. The NYPD takes command when a serious incident occurs, but otherwise, stays out of the neighborhood entirely.

There are approximately 7 synagogues, and one chapel. Sea Gate's most popular resident is arguably Mordechai ben David, the famous Hasidic singer. The old chapel, built in 1901, is just inside the Surf Avenue entrance to Sea Gate and no longer used for services. It is an official polling site each year at election time, a community center, and is home to Boy Scout Troop 256, one of the last Boy Scout Troops in the southern part of Brooklyn, New York.

In addition to the beach areas, Sea Gate has two parks:

A playground with a basketball court, skateboard ramps and children's jungle gym pieces is located next to the Sea Gate Community Center on Surf Avenue. The community center is across from the Sea Gate Beach Club. Lindburgh Park near the Lighthouse at Norton's Point is a barren, sandy patch of land with stunning views of Lower New York Harbor and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. "Lindy Park," as it is known to residents, has been home to various bits of playground equipment over the years, all of which have rusted to junk in the salt air or been washed out to sea by periodic storms.

The Beach Club was once reserved for Sea Gate residents, but now accepts anyone wishing to purchase a membership.

Aside from the aforementioned establishments, Sea Gate consists only of personal residences and two nursing homes, and assisted senior living houses. It is home to large Orthodox Jewish population, a small portion of which is Hassidic.
