Welcome to Canarsie
Canarsie is a Brooklyn neighborhood adjacent to the East Flatbush, Flatlands, Mill Basin, Bergen Beach, and East New York neighborhoods. It’s a lovely destination for those who want more outdoor space than most city neighborhoods offer. While there are some apartment buildings in the northwestern part of Canarsie, it’s predominantly single- and multi-family homes, giving the neighborhood a suburban atmosphere. The neighborhood has lovely waterfront access along the Jamaica Bay, a bustling pier, large park spaces and the 42-acre salt marsh at the Fresh Creek Nature Preserve. Canarsie residents have easy access to bird watching, fishing and boating. The large neighborhood has two train stations, the L at Rockaway Parkway and East 105th Street, so many residents rely on buses and cars.
