Greenpoint is a cozy, slow-moving neighborhood in the northernmost corner of Brooklyn. While hipness is all but impossible to avoid in northern Brooklyn, Greenpoint’s attitude is a bit more laidback than its neighbors. It is also easily one of the most beautiful areas in Brooklyn. The stunning waterfront views and historic buildings suggest an atmosphere that is comparable to low-key Brooklyn Heights. But dig a little a deeper, and you’ll discover a truly unique neighborhood. Its trendy restaurants, bars, and live music venues intermix with old school Polish shops and green spaces to create an eclectic and welcoming vibe. Neighborhood hot spots include: Five Leaves, The Brooklyn Barge, Glasserie, Peter Pan Donuts, McCarren Park, The Gutter Bowling Alley, Oxomoco, Paulie Gee’s, and Greenpoint Fish Co and Lobster.
