About Greenpoint

For many years Greenpoint was known as an isolated and sleepy hamlet with a large Polish population located on Brooklyn’s northernmost tip, but recent years have brought about a real estate development boom leading to its rapid transformation into one of the areas most exciting and vibrant neighborhoods. A young, artistic crowd has been drawn to Greenpoint, creating an eclectic mix in this family friendly neighborhood, which you may recognize from its many appearances as a setting in film and television shows (including The Departed, Donnie Brasco, and Law and Order SVU among many others). This influx of new residents has led to a bevy of trendy new shops, hip bars, chic cafes and restaurants opening their doors along the neighborhood's tree-lined streets. With its many parks, stunning views of Manhattan, vibrant entertainment scene and creative yet tranquil vibe, Greenpoint has it all.
