Neighborhood Guide

Sunset Park is known for its booming Chinatown, incredible food, and diverse community. The namesake park boasts Statue of Liberty views, and Industry City, our DevRelCon New York venue sits, nestled on the waterfront. Industry City offers local restaurants galore, workshops for local artists, distilleries and breweries, and so much more. We recommend you take advantage of all this area has to offer and have highlighted a few of our favorite spots below.

There is also a community-created NYC guide on Google Maps with lots of great spots for you to check out:

Places to Stay

We recommend grabbing a hotel room in Downtown Brooklyn, which is just one stop on the D or N train to Industry City. Downtown Brooklyn offers ample choices of hotels including the Ace Hotel, Even Hotel, Hilton, amongst plenty of others. If you prefer to stay within walking distance of the venue, there are options in the area.

Our hotel block at the Even Hotel is available at a discounted rate using this link. It is one subway stop away from the venue, in a hip and accessible part of Brooklyn.


Tacos El Bronco in Sunset Park is widely considered the best tacos in New York City. Be sure to grab a few while you’re here.

Start your day with a New York Bagel at Bagel Pub – you will absolutely understand what the hype is about after grabbing a fresh bagel here.

For top-notch vegan and vegetarian options, don’t miss Avo right inside the Industry City foodcourt.
