"A little removed from the action, but great neighborhood with a lot to offer"

Sunset Park, which extends from about 36th Street to the late 50s or so in Brooklyn, is a great neighborhood...if you don't want a whole lot of action and excitement. The thing is, it can take a long time to get to Manhattan from the area (not to mention somewhere in North Brooklyn like Williamsburg), although Park Slope isn't too much of a jaunt. But additionally, the modern businesses you see trickling into Park Slope South haven't quite reached Sunset Park yet, so everything is still on a pretty localized basis...local stores, local restaurants, nary a chain to be found. And to me that's a wonderful thing...I love nothing more than exploring the area's tacquerias and Chinese bakeries. This street has excellent transportation as well.
