The Sunset Park waterfront in Brooklyn is one of New York’s last true industrial zones. Part of warehouse-lined shoreline has been developed into a park, and the World War I-era Bush Terminal complex has been transformed into office space for creative and tech companies. But as one travels south toward the Brooklyn Army Terminal, there are still trucking companies, construction supply businesses, paint manufacturers, and auto repair shops. And like every other up-and-coming industrial zone in this city, hotels are slowly replacing small commercial businesses here. YIMBY recently spotted plans for a mixed-use hotel and medical office building at 4913 Second Avenue, on the corner of 50th Street.
