This is one of New York’s hidden treasures. Sunset Park is a nice and safe neighborhood that has ethnic diversity and some of the best restaurants to boot. The park is famous for the breathtaking vista. Sunset Park offers a gorgeous view of the Manhattan skyline especially, you guessed it, at sunset.. The park has a swimming pool, green fields, pedestrian walkways, sand volleyball court, recreation center, and living memorial dedicated to 9/11. There is something for every member of the family to enjoy on a family Sunday afternoon. Also look out for events taking place in the park; attendance is highly recommended.
