Sunset Park, Brooklyn

The BMT Sea Beach Line (N train) and the LIRR Bay Ridge Line continue to run parallel to each other in a wide, shallow trench through Sunset Park.

Eighth Avenue Station

The Sea Beach Line (N train) station at Eighth Avenue would presumably be also used by the Circumferential Line.

I was surprised to find that Brooklyn has it's own Chinatown here in Sunset Park with lots of restaurants and retail along with light manufacturing and distribution facilities.
