History of Dongan Hills

After World War II, Dongan Hills experienced a boom in new home development. These houses consisted primarily of single-family dwellings, many of which can still be found within the community today. In November of 1964, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge was officially opened, creating a direct link between Staten Island and Brooklyn. This created a new surge of interest in Dongan Hills, as residents of Brooklyn took advantage of the bustling new community, which has remained popular ever since.
