Neighborhood Guide

East New York

This neighborhood’s gritty urban landscape is also home to a nature preserve and a farm.

East New York is the easternmost neighborhood in Brooklyn. Its primarily Black and Hispanic population is working to improve their neighborhood through such community renewal efforts as community gardens, public murals, and youth outreach. East New York even boasts its very own farm, East New York Farm, which is dedicated to educating local residents on issues of food justice. Residents and visitors also enjoy the Fresh Creek Nature Preserve, a total of 42 acres of salt marsh along the neighborhood’s waterfront. The preserve, with its many species of plants, birds and fish, offers a rare glimpse of untamed Brooklyn. Photo courtesy of Sharilyn Neidhardt via Flickr.
