Starrett City
Starrett City is a neighborhood in the East New York section of Brooklyn, New York. Starrett City opened in 1974, and in 2002, changed its name to the Spring Creek Towers. The neighborhood is part of Brooklyn Community Board 5.

Starrett City spans over 153 acres and has 5,881 apartment units in 56 buildings.

It has eight "sections" in which each include several buildings, its own field, recreational area (jungle gym, park, handball court, basketball court) and its own garage for the residents in that section. These sections are Ardsley, Bethel, Croton, Delmar, Elmira, Freeport, Geneva, and Hornell; each named after municipalities in upstate New York. Each building has between 11 and 20 floors, with 8 apartments on most floors. All of the apartment buildings have a street address as well as a building name consisting of one letter from A-H, and one number from 1-8. In this case, A5 would refer to the fifth building of Ardsley Loop.

Starrett City is a very diverse neighborhood. With its many grassy fields, Fresh Creek, and Spring Creek Towers Shopping Center, it is different in landscape, community, and neighborhood life than other regions of Brooklyn.

Starrett City maintains its own Special Police Force and publishes their own community newspaper known as the Spring Creek Sun.
