Industry City.
Opportunity in the neighborhood.

For 125 years, Industry City has been opportunity in the neighborhood.  In fact, today more Sunset Park residents work at Industry City than at any other place in the neighborhood. Jobs. Entrepreneurship.  Community events. All come together at Industry City.
