Sea Gate in Brooklyn, NY and Breezy Point in Queens, NY. You must pass a checkpoint to enter. Also the ownership structure is unusual- so much so that I will not try to explain it, but simply point you in that direction. Its was differentiates them from places that simply have a gate/fence for security

Otherwise, if my memory serves me correctly, Los Angeles has the most gated communities.

sorry to keep rambling on, but I looked on Google maps at the two gated communities on Winchester, and what makes me laugh my balls off is the names of the streets in them. The street in the Bellerose one is "Country Pointe Circle" and the one in Douglaston is "Oak Park Drive".

There's also another one maybe half a mile north on the same road, right after the sanitation depot in Douglaston. A third one I can think of is in a semi-one, in Bayside, there's a strange little neighborhood with no sidewalks, narrow streets and big houses. They have two little makeshift gate-thingies off of Bell Blvd, though the other entrances to the hood from the side streets don't seem to be gated at all.

I used to live by Creedmoor when it was rundown. I remember the schools in th area would get warnings when somebody escaped.

I know that there are gated communities in Jersey like Fort Lee, Edgewater

^^^ funny, that reminds me of high school because I went to East Meadow High, which is literally across the street from the Nassau County jail, and the same thing would happen with an escape or at least attempted escape.

There are a few gated communities in many towns of Westchester county, New York. The ones that immediately come to mind consist of town houses and condominiums. They are:

Town - Community Name(s)
Croton-on-Hudson - Half Moon Bay
Ossining - Mystic Point and Eagle Bay
Briarcliff Manor - Scarborough Glen and Kemey's Cove

You can always try Riker's. That's a pretty well gated community


P.S. Just joking, just joking.

Well, there's Sea Gate and Breezy Point like many have mentioned. I thought those were the only 2 when I passed another one in Bayside on Bell Blvd. near the Throgs Neck.
