Neighborhood Description

The small neighborhood, which is little more than one square mile in measurement, lies just below the expansive Cypress Hills Cemetery.

The first non-sectarian cemetery corporation organized in the Brooklyn/Queens area of New York City, it serves as a final resting ground for well-known figures like baseball legend Jackie Robinson and actress Mae West.

Fulton Street, the main commercial strip served by the elevated J and Z subway lines, is home to barber shops, bodegas, ethnic restaurants, and specialty shops that capture the essence of this diverse neighborhood. Once home to German, Polish and Irish immigrants, Cypress Hills is now largely populated by Hispanic-Americans from Ecuador, El Salvador, and Guyana. Straddling the borders of Queens and Brooklyn, the neighborhood is a 50-minute subway ride from midtown Manhattan. It is home to the Arlington Avenue branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, one of 21 built by industrialist Andrew Carnegie in the early 20th Century.

Although Cypress Hills is sometimes associated with high crime, primarily because of its proximity to the troubled East New York section of Brooklyn, the neighborhood has seen many revitalization efforts over the years, led by the Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation. The organization has spent the last thirty years focusing on community building and the creation of affordable housing for the neighborhood’s residents. In addition to the diverse shopping and dining options, Cypress Hills also benefits from the neighboring 141-acre Highland Park, which now boasts tennis courts and a synthetic turf field for football and soccer. Although progress is slow, longtime residents and business owners will attest to the commercial redevelopments and growth that have taken place over the past few decades.

Located in the East New York section of Brooklyn, Cypress Hills is bordered by Queens to the north, Atlantic Avenue to the south, Pennsylvania Avenue to the west and Eldert Lane to the east.
