From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

South Slope, originally South Park Slope, is a neighborhood in BrooklynNew York City, between Sunset Park/Greenwood Heights to the south and Park Slope to the north. Because there are no official borders to neighborhoods in New York City, definitions of the boundaries of South Slope can differ significantly. The New York Times real estate listings, for instance, use 9th Street as the northern border, the Prospect Expressway as the southern border, with Fourth Avenue the boundary of the west and Prospect Park West and 8th Avenue to the east.[1] Other definitions use 15th Street on the north and 24th Street to the south.

While the name "south Slope" has been used for many years, the area was officially designated "South Park Slope" when it was rezoned by the New York City Department of City Planning in 2005.[2] It is primarily made up of pre-war row houses, although there has been a spate of new, non-contextual construction in recent years predominantly in the inner blocks with higher density development along 4th Avenue due to the 2005 R8A zoningdesignation.

South Slope is a part of Brooklyn Community District 7 along with Greenwood HeightsWindsor Terrace and Sunset Park.

For the park after which the neighborhood is named, see Sunset Park (Brooklyn park).

Sunset Park is a neighborhood in the southwestern part of the borough of Brooklyn in  New York City, bounded by Park Slope and Green-Wood Cemetery to the north, Borough Park to the east, Bay Ridge to the south, and Upper New York Bay to the west.[1][4][a] The neighborhood is named after a 24.5-acre (9.9 ha) public park of the same name, located between 41st and 44th Streets and Fifth and Seventh Avenues.[5] The region north of 36th Street is also known as Greenwood Heights or South Slope.

The area was initially occupied by the Canarsee Indians until the first European settlement occurred in 1636. Through the late 19th century, Sunset Park was sparsely developed, and it was considered to be part of Bay Ridge or South Brooklyn. The arrival of elevated railways and the subway led to Sunset Park's development, with many middle-class row houses and several industrial hubs being erected in the 1890s through the 1920s. After the decline of the industrial hubs in the 1940s and 1950s, the name "Sunset Park" was given to the region north of 65th Street as part of an urban renewal initiative. In addition, immigrant groups started moving to the neighborhood in the late 20th century, and the neighborhood's population was composed of HispanicsChineseIndians, and Scandinavians by the 21st century.

Sunset Park is part of Brooklyn Community District 7. It is patrolled by the 72nd Precinct of the New York City Police Department. Fire services are provided by the New York City Fire Department's Engine Company 201 and Engine Company 228/Ladder Company 114. Politically, Sunset Park is represented by the New York City Council's 38th and 39th Districts.
