Sunset Park Reviews

All Categories
I have lived in Sunset Park my whole life. I like how diverse Sunset Park is. I like that there are a lot of outdoor activities you can do, like head to the park or to Bush Terminal Park. I think the food is great! I like the Mexican cuisine. You can't beat tacos for $1.75. I like that if you walk over a couple of blocks, you go to Industry City where you can shop and grab a bite to eat!

Sunset park is friendly neighbor with plentiful events to celebrate as a community. There are many repairs and construction going on but the new and improved park brings joy to the kids living there. The public pool was one of my favorite places to go during my summer breaks. There are definitely more change going on in the neighborhood as new stores replaced old ones, bringing new things into this community. The neighbor has various ways to get around the places and for the most part suitable for middle and lower income families.
I have been living in Sunset Park Brooklyn NY for more than 5 years. This is the Latino and Chinese major neighborhood. The 5th Ave has all kinds of grocery stores and many authentic Latino style restaurants. The 8th Ave is absolutely Chinese style area. You'll see Chinese characters everywhere, many Chinese authentic restaurants, fresh fruit and meat markets, and fancy and interesting festivals during Chinese festivals. Yet, the cost is relatively cheaper in this area. The rent is about $500 a room per month. Housing is alright but better condition compared to Manhattan. The subway and bus systems fully cover this area, the public transportation is very convenient. Weather wise, Sunset Park is humid in Summer, cold in Winter, very comfortable during Spring and Autumn. This area is close to the fun area in Manhattan and the beaches in Coney Island.
