New Dorp Beach saw its first European settlement 1671. A two-room structure, “Britton Cottage” was razed to make way for development. A rebuilt version can still be seen in Historic Richmondtown. The neighborhood really began to prosper following the Civil War. A resort, bungalows, and campgrounds took root, followed by piers and hotels. Now, those tourist attractions have been replaced by 10-foot high sand dunes. You can still see remnants of the foundations if you look.
