Located on the northernmost tip of Brooklyn, Greenpoint is a residential neighborhood that is in the midst of a rejuvenation. While it has always been known as a friendly neighborhood, an influx of young professionals and families in the area has introduced a number of new restaurants, bars, stores and more in the neighborhood, making it a more lively and vibrant neighborhood today than it was before. The area now boasts of beautiful new homes, great schools, good stores and moderate living expenses—which is everything a New Yorker would want in a home in the city.
Much like its neighbor Williamsburg, Greenpoint is especially known for being a fun place to be especially during the weekends, with greenmarkets, brunch offerings and other special events making the neighborhood a center of activity. While the retail and dining options in the neighborhood have gained a lot of fame in the recent past, residents looking for more natural outlets to relax will like the green expanses of McCarren Park, or even the stunning views from the Greenpoint waterfront, that look out to the majestic skyscrapers of Manhattan.
Greenpoint is served exclusively by the G subway line, but residents of the neighborhood will have no trouble commuting thanks to the many buses that service the area. Greenpoint is a great place to look for new, affordable homes, with recent rezoning efforts leading to the rise of many affordable apartments in the neighborhood. Much has been written about the fun lifestyles of people living in Greenpoint, and now, you can choose to become a part of this neighborhood by living in these new construction condominiums in the area.
