New Dorp has a long and storied history as one of the first European settlements in New York City. 

Founded in 1671 by Dutch settlers from the New Netherland colony, it was originally named Nieuw Dorp, meaning "New Village" in Dutch. The area was first settled after the English resurveyed the pre-existing Dutch village of Oude Dorp (now Old Town) and expanded the lots along the shore. However, the settlement was temporarily abandoned after several destructive battles between colonists and Native Americans.

By the late 1800s, New Dorp Beach was home to one of the Vanderbilt family's farms and a popular horse trotting track. The area continued to grow into one of the main population and commercial centers on Staten Island. New Dorp was officially incorporated into New York City in 1898 as part of the Borough of Richmond.
