Borough Park is a great neighborhood for Chinese immigrants/Americans. This neighborhood has a few elementary schools and a park, so it’s great for kids. It’s also a great place to live because of 8th Ave. Theres tons of restaurants and small little stores to buy your everyday necessities. Also a lot of grocery stores to buy fresh produce, meat, and seafood.

I have been living in Borough park for 21 years. My experience in this neighborhood has been incredible. This is the neighborhood where I met my best friends and close neighbors that ended up being closer than actual blood relationships. The best thing about this neighborhood is that its very safe even at night and us girls can walk without fear. Another beneficial aspect to this neighborhood is that it has many bus stands, train stations and a hospital right around the corner.
Borough Park is an extremely safe and family-friendly neighborhood that is comprised mainly of Jews, Hispanics, and Chinese. Being in a quiet part of Brooklyn, the public schools and nightlife are laughable, but has D, F, and N service that takes many of its inhabitants to better schools in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
