City Line

City Line is a sub-section of the East New York neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York City, bordering the neighborhoods of Cypress Hills to the north and Ozone Park, Queens to the east, and the Shore Parkway to the south. The neighborhood is named “City Line” for its location in the former City of Brooklyn near the border with Queens County before Brooklyn and parts of Queens County were consolidated into New York City in 1898.[1]

City Line is one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Many Italians, Germans and Irish originally lived in the area, which today is home to immigrants from Bangladesh, the Dominican Republic, Guyana, and Puerto Rico.[2]

City Line is served by the New York City Subway with the A train and the C train of the IND lines. The main commercial district is located along Liberty Avenue. The neighborhood is served by Brooklyn Community Board 5.
