City Portraits - Sunset Park, Brooklyn

Sunset Park, Brooklyn
Photo by myself in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

It was brightly sunny this weekend, in Sunset Park. The canopies were up in the background, to keep pedestrians cool.

This area is the equivalent of Chinatown. Amazingly, just a couple blocks away is a very Hispanic neighborhood. Just take the 'R' train to 53rd Street and Fourth Avenue. Sunset Park is tucked in between Windsor Terrace and Bay Ridge.

You can find Malaysian, Vietnamese and Chinese cuisines here.

Open markets make for a lively experience during the day.

English is a second language in this neighborhood.
