Borough Park

Borough Park Real Estate, also known as Boro Park, is situated at the southwest part of Brooklyn. Here you can find all the peace and quiet of the suburbs while still retaining the conveniences city life has to offer. Borough Park Real Estate is known for its sense of community and family values where everyone goes to the same schools, religious places of worship, stores and community events. The tiny enclave of Borough Park is made up of roughly 200 blocks in western Brooklyn between Ninth and McDonald avenues and is home to one of the nation’s largest Hasidic and Orthodox Jewish communities. It is also one of the most densely populated parts of the borough, with more than 300 religious institutions and 191,000 residents, according to Community Board 12, which oversees the neighborhood. There are pockets of other cultures in the community as well, including Asian, Italian and Mexican Americans living in the neighborhood.

Borough Park Real Estate – Things To Do

Borough Park is a shopper’s dream, with hundreds of stores lining its shopping districts, many of which hold vintage gems passed down through lineage. The biggest event of the year lies on the holiday of Purim, when all residents of Borough Park come together to prepare and celebrate.

On Friday nights before the Sabbath, Borough Park becomes one of the most tranquil spots in all of New York City. It is then that everyone is inside preparing for the Sabbath according to Jewish customs. What is usually a bustling neighborhood alive with festivals becomes a quiet place of seclusion – no cars, no lights, no people.
