East New York neighborhood photoEast New York is located in the north-easternmost part of Brooklyn, just north of Canarsie. The neighborhood is bordered by Cypress Hill and the Cemetery of the Evergreens to the north (Jamaica Avenue), the neighborhood of City Line to the east, Canarsie and New Lots to the south (East 108th Street), and Brownsville and Bed-Stuy to the west (Rockaway Avenue). Originally a commuter town that sprung up around mass-transit train lines in the 1830’s, East New York has witnessed waves of immigration throughout its history. As a result, the neighborhood offers a wide variety of multi-ethnic eateries and specialty shops.
East NY is home to the MTA’s ENY Bus Depot, which operates 13 bus lines in Brooklyn and 2 lines in Queens. The depot is a critical part of NYC’s mass-transit system, and an important part of the neighborhood’s economy. East New York also boasts one of only three Brooklyn stops on the Long Island Rail Road, providing direct access to Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties.
With multiple economic incentives, a steadily dropping crime rate, and a strategic position on the cross-roads of two major counties, East New York offers many opportunities for small- to medium-sized businesses, as well as residents looking for an economically stable area. The neighborhood offers a selection of parks, playgrounds, and recreational facilities. The 3.3-acre Evergreen Park, adjoining Cemetery of the Evergreens, and the 4,000-plus-acre Jamaica Bay Wildlife Sanctuary are the crown jewels of this neighborhood’s natural areas. In addition, small and medium-sized parks and playgrounds are scattered throughout East New York, providing residents with plenty of space to relax, play sports, and enjoy themselves. The City has renovated and upgraded several parks in the last few years, one example being Linden Park, which had received a $3.5-million overhaul in 2005 and now features a world-class running track, 80,000-square-foot field multi-lined for football and soccer, basketball courts, a baseball diamond, and high-tech seating & lighting.
East New York’s premier shopping destination is the Gateway Center Shopping Mall, a modern 640,000-square-foot facility filled with shops, eateries, and entertainment venues.
