As the northernmost neighborhood in Brooklyn, Greenpoint’s small town charm is getting a Williamsburg-like hipster makeover. Both Williamsburg and Greenpoint’s waterfront areas were rezoned to pave the way for new developments in 2005, but Greenpoint has lagged behind it’s hipper big brother, making strides towards gentrification at a more moderate and measured pace than Williamsburg’s seemingly frenetic pace. However, rent and sales prices have been rising in the area in the last few years and developers have gotten on the surge.
Fueling the recent manic building in Greenpoint is also the fact that many young professionals have been priced out of Williamsburg but still want to stay in close proximity to this cultural mecca. As a result, demand for housing in Greenpoint has skyrocketed.
With some of the best public schools in the city, Greenpoint attracts families in addition to the young professionals and hipsters the area is known for. Since it’s not as easy to get to as other hipster enclaves in Brooklyn, Greenpoint is still slightly cheaper and, as residents note, safer which is very attractive to young families.
Local residents also enjoy using McCarren Park, a 35-acre green space bordering Williamsburg and Greenpoint.
Brooklynites head to McCarren Park to use the jogging track, play baseball on the park’s fields, swim in McCarren Park Pool, sunbathe in the summer, and ice-skate at the local rink during the winter months. For a less crowded outdoor option, Greenpointers head to Msgt. McGolrick Park for the playground, expansive lawns, great seating, and on summer Sundays to the local Farmer’s Market (during winter the market is held at Lutheran Church of the Messiah nearby).
While Williamsburg is thought to be the main hot spot for creative types and galleries, it doesn’t have the corner of the market on all things artsy; and nowhere is this more evident than in Greenpoint.
Greenpoint has a wonderful arts scene, with galleries, pop-up exhibitions, poetry readings, art studios, open mic nights, and performances spaces promoting not only established artists but young and emerging ones as well. Be sure to check out the massive 6,000 square foot Greenpoint Gallery, which features creatives from all walks of art.
Greenpoint Gallery isn’t just a gallery for the visual arts, but also for the ingenious creatives who tickle our ears with their mellifluous music. You can rent the space for a private party, but young Greenpoint residents prefer the music events and dance concerts the gallery hosts. Excitingly, the gallery offers classes at their in-house print shop for photography neophytes and even rents the space to professionals in need of space and equipment to produce their work.
Greenpoint also has a thriving culinary scene from high-end restaurants, ethnic Polish and Asian cuisines, to incredible pizza, fabulous seafood, and delicious dessert spots and bakeries.
Greenpoint is known for hosting one of America’s largest Polish populations, and as you’d expect the pierogis in this Brooklyn neighborhood are unparalleled. For a truly fun Polish dining experience complete with statues of knights and portraits of men ready for battle, check out Krolewskie Jadlo which serves Polish staples including borscht soup and the pierogis for which they’re known. For a truly immersive experience, Karczma is the place to go. At this Polish restaurant the servers dress in traditional Polish clothing for an experience you can’t get outside Poland.
The best pizza is at Greenpoint institution Paulie Gee’s, and the lines of devoted patrons pouring out the front door are a testament to its amazing cuisine.
Paulie Gee’s eponymous owner, Paul Giannone, sources his food locally so you’ll sleep well from your pizza induced food coma knowing you’ve eaten sustainable food that’s as good for the environment as it is in your mouth. For another sustainable option, check out Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co for responsibly sourced seafood with a constantly changing menu reflecting seasonably available options. Noted avant-garde restaurant, Luksus (Danish for “luxury”) features a creative tasting menu and optional beer pairing, but wine drinkers beware: They only serve beer.
If you have dessert on the brain, there’s no place sweeter than Greenpoint’s fabulous bakeries and confectionaries. The crown jewel of Greenpoint’s sugary staples is Peter Pan Donut and Pastry Shop. In business for more than six decades, Peter Pan is a Greenpoint institution with the best donuts in New York City. You can also grab a milkshake or some coffee to wash down your sugary delight.
For French bakery delights, head on over to Charlotte Patisserie for authentic Parisian macarons and pan de chocolat.
In keeping with Greenpoint’s Polish roots, Syrena Bakery’s on-site kitchen has been serving its loyal customers Polish desserts for over 25 years. Make sure to check out their babka and mackovia, but be warned: the staff prefers Polish speaking patrons so bring your patience and check your attitude at the door.
