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 to the area has introduced a number of new restaurants, bars, stores and more in the neighborhood, making it even more lively and vibrant. Greenpoint now boasts beautiful new homes, good stores, and moderate living expenses—everything a New Yorker would want.
Much like its neighbor Williamsburg, Greenpoint is especially known for being a fun place to be during the weekends, with greenmarkets, numerous brunch offerings and other special events making the neighborhood a center of activity. While the retail and dining options in the area have gained a lot of fame in recent years, 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 on to the majestic skyscrapers of Manhattan.
Greenpoint is served exclusively by the G subway line, but residents will have no trouble commuting thanks to the many buses that also service the area. Greenpoint is a great place to look for new, affordable homes, with recent rezoning efforts leading to the rise of many exciting new homes in this changing area.
