Before we get to talk about Real Estate, let’s just review the background and history of Sunset Park. Since the 1980's until today Sunset Park Brooklyn, NY has the largest Chinese community in New York City and has been known as Brooklyn's Chinatown. Sunset Park was at one time called Little Latin America, with over 50% of the neighborhoods population being Hispanic in cultural background and origin. These days Sunset Park is home to a wonderful diversity of not only Asians, but Hispanics, Finns, Norwegians, Italians, Orthodox Jews and others.
Now on to Sunset Park real estate. The borders of the Sunset Park neighborhood are between 65th Street and 42nd Street and from 3rd Avenue to 8th/9th Avenue.
