Neighborhood Guide

Marine Park

A neighborhood named after, and located next to, Brooklyn’s largest park.

Brooklynites celebrate Prospect Park, but if you travel south you’ll find an ever larger, and just as incredible, public park to explore. Marine Park (the actual park) is Brooklyn’s largest at 530 acres, and it holds natural grasslands and salt marshes. Marine Park (the neighborhood) is nestled right next to it, also boasting a peaceful and untouched waterfront. This middle-class neighborhood is home to a mix of Italian, Irish, Greek, and Jewish people, with some strong Irish Catholic roots. Photo courtesy of Chris Goldberg via Flickr.
