Only in a neighborhood like Sunset Park can you find such diametrically opposite cultures living harmoniously together. To the west of Fifth Avenue, Mexicans, Ecuadorians, Peruvians and all manner of Latin Americans have made their homes, spreading the gospel of tacos and tortas. On the eastern side, Chinese, Vietnamese, Malaysian and other Asian Americans have filled up the streets with bubble tea outposts and dim sum halls.
Today, these lines are more blended than ever as the population grows and communities expand. Fortunately for foodies, that translates to a unique medley of cuisines, all within walking distance of each other.
Hop on the D-N-R to 36th Street and let’s get eating.
