About Sunset Park Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Sunset Park is a diverse, artsy waterfront neighborhood sandwiched between Greenwood Heights and Bay Ridge. It has maintained an old-school vibe and it filled with mostly row houses. Liberty View Industrial Plaza is an ultra hip shopping haven for locals and is full of retail chains as well as shops for locally produced products. Food Hall at Industry City is an industrial home for artists and houses some unique restaurants. The development has attracted a lot of artists to the neighborhood and many residents are concerned that gentrification will result from these developments. Sunset Park got its name for a reason - it’s a great view of the sunset over the Manhattan skyline. Bush Terminal Park is a popular waterfront area to enjoy it. The community has a thriving Latin American and Chinese culture.
