Place Matters Profile

On The Web

Stretching along the Brooklyn edge of New York Harbor, Dyker Beach Park is the ideal place for kite enthusiasts to catch the Atlantic winds. For at least several decades, kite-flying families have gathered in the park to practice and teach each other how to fly kites. But in 1998, the Parks and Police Departments decided that kite flying posed a dangerous distraction to motorists on the adjacent Belt Parkway. As a result, “No Kite Flying” signs were posted throughout the park. Kite-flyers petitioned to allow their hobby in the park, and though they met little success, kites are still occasionally seen there.

For years, a favorite kite-flying place for Brooklynites.
