Greenpoint is a magical place, tucked away at the very Northern tip of Brooklyn, where it borders Queens and the East River. The transport isn’t always favorable, but Greenpoint’s beauty is apparent as stunning views of Manhattan can be seen all along the waterfront. The neighborhood has transformed over the last decade. Up until the late 2000s, the area was predominantly Polish, but in 2021 hipsters reside there, too. They’re drawn to its food, views, and proximity to Williamsburg. Admirers and newcomers are welcome, but please read this guide created by the locals before you visit. It provides useful tips about how to act, dress, and take part in local activities.
