Residents say the area around the 36th Street Station is family-friendly and is now comprised mostly of Latino and Asian residents.

Business signs in Chinese, Spanish and English dot the landscape, such as Ideal Automotive and Top Taste Food warehouse. “Overall, it’s a good community,” said 17-year-old Sunset Park High School student Ryan Morales, who was out walking his Golden Retriever puppy, Lio, in the park. “There’s always people that are willing to help you.”
