Homes on Hawtree Creek in Howard Beach

Hawtree Creek is a small saltwater creek that empties into Jamaica Bay in Queens, New York. The creek separates the neighborhoods of Hamilton Beach and Howard Beach.

In the early 1900s, a canal was dug at the southern end of the creek to create Hawtree Basin.[1] During colonial times, fishermen would build fishing shacks along its banks.

There are two Boat Clubs off Hawtree Creek
