Share Info About Canarsie
Relative bargains can still be found for NY apartments in the diverse Brooklyn neighborhood of Canarsie. Located in the southeast section of the borough, Canarsie is bordered by Fresh Creek Basin and East 108th Street to the east (and the neighborhood of East New York); by Jamaica Bay to the south; by Remsen and Ralph Avenues to the west (and East Flatbush, Bergen Beach and Flatlands); and by Linden Boulevard to the north (and Brownsville). Canarsie's primary commercial districts are centered on Rockaway Parkway, Remsen Avenue, and Flatlands Avenue. Due to the neighborhood's distance from Manhattan, subway commuters will need to sit on the L train for almost an hour, and that's often combined with a bus ride to the subway stop. For many residents of Canarsie apartments, a car is a necessity for getting around within the neighborhood. For recreation and relaxation, the Canarsie Pier is a popular neighborhood gathering place for fishing, and the area's 100-acre Seaview Park offers residents playing fields (soccer, baseball, cricket), playgrounds, running and biking paths and lots of green, open space for picnicking.
