Industry City is a collection of warehouses in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn. Home to shopping, dining, art, work and event space, it’s a perfect destination to visit with friends and family on an afternoon out.

 

The complex is located within repurposed industrial buildings along the Brooklyn waterfront. Industry City features 6 million square feet of retail, work and event space, including five acres of outdoor space. Each building spans the surface area of a city block.

 

There are currently more than 30 food and beverage vendors, with more set to open. Perfect for any palate, cuisine includes pizza, Thai street fare, burgers, pastries, a brewery, ice cream and a Japanese food hall. If shopping is more your speed, visit the on-site vintage shop, home furnishing store, grocery store and wine shop. In addition to permanent vendors, Industry City hosts rotating art installations, weekly concerts and other live events. Buildings are connected via a pedestrian-friendly outdoor walkway.

 

Industry City is a close walk from various bus and subway stops. Open daily, hours vary by vendor.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
