Great Park and Neighborhood
Oct 2019
This past October I spent 2 weeks in Sunset Park and it was a great stay. Pretty chill neighborhood with lots of diversity in culture and food options. And when you go further south of the park in the 50s streets, you will see some straight vintage old school Brooklyn buildings that have retained their character. I feel like I went back in time when I went down there! Also, go check out Industry City...

Sunset Park Central Park

From this location you can see the Sunset Park area of Brooklyn.

A good view of NY Harbor in the distance and also the NJ Seaports.

Good for walking, and playground activities for young and old.

Has a City Run Central Outdoor Pool with Lockers in the summer.

Parking is curb street side in the local neighborhood.

Interesting Neighborhood
Sep 2019
This place has emerged as one of Brooklyn's interesting neighborhoods. It's still a bit out there away from Manhattan, and still off the beaten path, but it has definitely been discovered. Very diverse and interesting, food and beverage.

Best view at Sunset
Jun 2019 • Couples
Sunset Park in Brooklyn is on walking distance from the apartment of my son, where we stayed during vacation. We went to the park on Friday evening with dinner packed with us. Park is fully filled with people enjoying because of weekend. Most of visitors are Chinese because it is near to China Town of Brooklyn. People are enjoying music and group dance in open area. View of Sunset is really excellent. At seaside Manhattan, New Jersey view is also visible.

Great Neighborhood to get a sense of industrial Brooklyn and New York
Oct 2017 • Solo

Sunset Park in Brooklyn has a special flavor and range of activities and sights.

The industrial areas in the 30’s and 40’s off of Third and Fourth Avenues are dramatic to look at. Its transition is akin to what happened in Dumbo, Soho and Chelsea Market, industrial to residential and commercial. There are still small factories and auto repair places. The Nets have a training facility that is supposed to be amazing. I have meet people from Manhattan who come to a Saturday flea market (241 37th St.) in the area.

A major section of Bush Terminal has been transformed into Industry City (32nd to 37th Street along Third Avenue) with all sorts of interesting events and work spaces. One restaurant Avocaderia only serves avocado dishes.

Bush Terminal Park (Marginal Street between 44th and 50th Streets) has a landscaping sensibility similar to the High Line with windblown tumbleweed. It is a stunning park and a delight to see. The entrance has buildings from the industrial era.

The newest Chinatown in New York is along 8th Avenue in the fifties. The sea of green and exotic vegetables at the huge grocery stores makes great photographs. We bought some greens and cooked them. When you buy fish in these stores, they are swimming! You point out the fish you want. It is knocked out with some device, (a hammer?) , and you take it home!

The actual park of Sunset Park (between 41st and 44th Street, Fifth and Seventh Avenues) is I believe the highest point in Brooklyn. It has a lovely view of the Statue of Liberty, New York Bay and of Manhattan.

And those of a certain age would appreciate a shot of the Jackie Gleason Bus Depot!

Where else can you watch South American style Volleyball while eating tamales? Where else can you watch and join in with 75 older Chinese woman dancing to music while you drink your giant fresh Watermelon juice? Where else can you see the best view in town from over 300 feet high above NY harbor. Where else can you swim for free in the summer in the best public pool around or sled down the best hill around in the winter (Thank you NYC Parks dept for putting up soft barricades so we don't fly into 5th ave.) SO hop a bit off the usual NYC tour route and come on over to Sunset Park! It really does prove that we all can get along.

The Sunset is unparalleled
Jun 2017 • Friends
I am an unashamed sunset chaser. On every single trip, I can't leave the place without seeing a sunset at least on one of the days I'm there - it makes me feel that the trip was incomplete! Staying here for a year, I've been to various points in New York City, including the Brooklyn Bridge Park blah blah blah - nothing has been able to measure up to the sunset you can see at this park. It's essentially an unobstructed view of the sun with a wide vista. That being said, there's not much to explore around the area so I would definitely recommend only traveling here to see the sunset at the park. Or you could sit down and have a picnic, but that's about it - it's a typical residential area!
