The town consists mostly of brownstones like the ones photographed here, (the beautiful St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church in the background, a staple in the landscape of Sunset Park.)

Sunset Park’s “main street” 5th Avenue, stretching from 39th st to 60th st (this image was probably taken in the early morning, normally a very busy area)

The Factory District in 2nd Avenue, or as it’s known now, “Industry City.”
