After giving me a tour of Sunset Park, Craig selected my most southerly nabe yet.
Mapleton is a sliver of a neighborhood nestled between Borough Park, Bensonhurst, and Ocean Parkway. It abuts Washington Cemetery, Brooklyn’s largest Jewish cemetery, which recently ran out of room.
Clocking in at around 75 blocks, Mapleton should be much more manageable than Sunset Park (~250). Plus, as I’ve said, I love graves.
