The SunsetParkMatters blog has been created to track the physical changes taking place in our community, as well as the impact these changes are having on our quality of life. Sunset Park cannot survive the onslaught of irresponsible, inappropriate and, "right down ugly" over-building we continue to experience. Don't wait for anyone else to stop and, hopefully, reverse the destruction of Sunset Park. The people responsible for this out-of-control construction don't even live here, you and I are the ones being affected. Please document every change on your and neighboring block(s). This blog will post all "before & after" pictures and we are keeping a database of construction permits filed, permits approved and violations/stop work orders issued. You will be able to request information about your block by posting your questions.

We're back! Because we deserve to know who's who & what's what.

This community has not had in-depth and impartial local media coverage for years. Even after the Home Reporter and Sunset News/The Brooklyn Spectator* stopped being published a couple of years ago, we have continued to be ignored by The Brooklyn Papers: Your Neighborhood-Your News ®. Have you noticed that Sunset Park is not covered by The Brooklyn Paper; there are Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Dyker Heights, Windsor Terrace, Park Slope, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Fort Greene, Brooklyn Heights (etc,) editions, but not a Sunset Park edition. What's up with that?
Could this be intentional? Could it be that telling the truth about Sunset Park might bring down the overly inflated real estate prices of recent years? What do you think?
*Just recently the Home Reporter and Sunset News/The Brooklyn Spectator has resumed publication- we'll be looking for a Police Blotter covering the 72nd Precinct.
