Sometime in 1937, a group of real estate speculators gave up their hope that the Jamaica Bay inlet in the former village of Keschaechquereren would become a major New York port and donated the land they had acquired to New York City.

The Board of Aldermen voted to keep some 500 acres of that land for recreational space and named it Brooklyn Marine Park.

As the Jewish population in Marine Park, Brooklyn, continues to soar, so does the responsibility to look out for the needy in the community.
