Sunset Park

The outsourcing of American industry took a heavy toll on Sunset Park, once a highly productive manufacturing sector. The area experienced a visible deterioration of its sprawling terminal buildings and warehouses for many decades. Today, the area’s long-unused industrial spaces are seeing a renaissance among local maker businesses and corporate giants alike. Amazon, Time Inc., the Brooklyn Flea, and Blue Marble are new residents at Industry City. As well, the sprawling structures are being transformed into venues for high-energy raves and dance parties — a far cry from the tortured souls who populated the area in Hubert Selby Jr.’s 1964 novel Last Exit to Brooklyn.
