Kings County NY History
Kings County is now completely taken up by the borough of Brooklyn, NYC. Brooklyn was originally settled as the New Amsterdam colony of Breuckelen, back in the 17th century. It was actually on Long Island, on the shore of the East River. Before the Dutch, though, the area belonged to the Lenape tribe.

By 1646 the town was spelled Breukelen, and incorporated the neighborhoods which are now known as Gravesend, Brooklyn Heights, Clover Hill, Flatlands (then Niew Amersfoort), Flatbush (then Midwout), Bushwick (then Biswiujck) and Niew Utrecht. Kings County real estate was hot even before Kings County existed!

Brooklyn had become quite large by the 19th century, and was consolidated with New York City in 1898. At the time, NYC consisted only of the modern boroughs of Manhattan and The Bronx. In time, the budding megalopolis would expand to cover the remainder of Kings County and the formerly rural areas of Queens and Staten Island as well.

How Kings County NY Got Its Name
By 1664, the English took the colony from the Dutch in the lead-up to the Second Anglo-Dutch war. It was renamed New York, not after York in England but rather after the naval commander who captured it – James, Duke of York.

At the time, Brooklyn and everything that would be known as Kings County was renamed the West Riding of York Shire in the Province of New York. Kings County would be partitioned off of the West Riding in 1683. This was the first time it would be possible to speak about ‘Kings County real estate agents’, but it would not be the last!
