The Basics

Sunset Park is a family neighborhood, and that’s clear from the moment you step off the subway. See stroller-pushing families shopping at the localcarnicerías, and crossing guards helping kids along Fifth Avenue. To get an authentic feel for daily life there, take public transit, stop by during the day, and wander the distinctly Brooklyn, brownstone-lined side streets. Don’t miss a walk through the area’s namesake green space, Sunset Park, for views of Lower Manhattan.

When to Get There

There’s really no bad time to visit Sunset Park, though it’s most fun to walk through the neighborhood when the weather is pleasant, typically in late spring, summer, or early fall. For dinner at the Latin American restaurants on Fifth Avenue—or the dumpling houses on Eighth Avenue—go in the early evening for fewer crowds.
