History of Dongan Hills below Hylan
Dongan Hills started as an enclave for post-WWII single family residences, but these days, the neighborhood is becoming increasingly popular with former Brooklyn and Manhattan residents searching for quiet streets and affordable properties along with easy access to the city. While real estate prices in the exclusive hilltop Dongan Hills Colony might be too much for the average homebuyers, that doesn't mean househunters can't enjoy the neighborhood in one of the area's more affordable homes above or below Hylan Boulevard.
