Get to know Sunset Park

Nestled between Borough Park and Bay Ridge, Sunset Park takes its name from the lovely 25-acre park of the same name. It’s a lively area, in marked contrast with Sunset Park’s most famous landmark, the vast Green-Wood Cemetery. Fifth Avenue forms the spine of the neighborhood, which is served by the R train and stretches all the way down to the water at Industry City, home to an exciting only-in-Brooklyn array of shops, eateries and innovative start-ups in laid-back loft offices.

Fifth Avenue forms the spine of the neighborhood, with a wealth of restaurants found along it and nearby Eighth Avenue. Industry City, a sprawling complex of waterfront warehouses and factories, has more recently become the epicenter of all things artisanal and culinary, and where you'll find a vibrant mix of breweries, distilleries and makers. The impressive Green-Wood Cemetery was founded in 1838 and is the final resting place of many famous New Yorkers. Its landscape of rolling hills, woods, and ponds became a model not only for later cemeteries but also for urban parks, while its monuments and mausoleums are fascinating examples, on a small scale, of Victorian architecture. The enormous cemetery is almost 20 times the size of Sunset Park, the neighborhood’s namesake.
