Williamsburg Hip Meets Laid-Back "Little Poland"

Tucked against the East River and Newtown Creek in the northernmost peninsula of Brooklyn, Greenpoint is the more laid-back, low-key, and quiet cousin of the neighboring Williamsburg. With hip shops and restaurants, lively bars and nightlife scenes, quirky boutiques and galleries, and breathtaking skyline views, Greenpoint definitely has a “Willamsbug” vibe, but with a little more space and a little less hustle-and-bustle, it retains a small-town charm dating back to its days as a Polish working class community.

The Community

Greenpoint has a little bit of something for everyone. Bustling businesses comprised of funky shops and stores, delicious local eateries (with emphasis on Polish flavors), laid-back wine bars, lively dance clubs, and a plethora of art galleries and live music venues, Greenpoint definitely provides its share of nightlife and entertainment. But it’s also got beautiful greenspaces, like McCarren Park or the WNYC Transmitter Park along the East River.

The Homes

Greenpoint offers a diversity of homes, from stunning new luxury condos along the East River to more traditional and charming row houses and walk-ups farther inland. Growing in popularity are the trendy new converted-warehouse lofts, apartments, and condos, featuring historic exteriors of crumbling brick and luxurious contemporary interiors that perfectly blend elegance with a little bit of funky modern flare.
