Unofficially considered the Jewish capital of the United States, Borough Park (sometimes spelled Boro Park) is home to one of the largest Orthodox and Hasidic Jewish populations in the US. Only 200 blocks in area but with over 300 religious institutions, Borough Park has extremely tight knit religious communities that are still welcoming to their diverse neighbors. A recent influx of Asian-American residents has slightly changed the demographics of the neighborhood although kosher grocers and bakeries still dominate the retail space. Real estate is dominated by low-rise multi-family homes. Demand remains permanently high for Borough Park real estate due to the closeness of the community and religious observances. Overall, Borough Park is a safe neighborhood with an undeniably Jewish personality.
