Sunset Park is one of Brooklyn’s most diverse neighborhoods, with an old world, friendly vibe that residents love. The park itself serves as the perfect centerpiece for the surrounding row houses, amazing Chinese and Latin American restaurants, and offers beautiful views. Industry City and the Brooklyn Army Terminal also have begun to offer industrial co-working spaces that promise to bring the same arts and design professionals that made Williamsburg in to a world-wide brand.
Compared to Williamsburg, Sunset Park offers a similar vibe with more than half the price - $517 per square foot versus $1146 per square foot in closed sales in the most recent quarter.
“Sunset Park is unique in New York's gastronomic demimonde… Domincan, Mexican, Peruvian, Ecuadorian, and Salvadoran places, and the stray diner and Hasidic spot, are all tumbled down the hill toward the Upper Bay, while an ever-expanding Chinatown on top lures you with Vietnamese, Yunnan, Sichuan, Cantonese, Malaysian, and the occasional Thai place. You pick. Either way, dinner will be cheap and tasty. Sunset Park is one of the city's great unsung food destinations” – The Village Voice (09/2014)
