Description
Greenpoint is the section of Brooklyn that is the furthest northwest. Those looking for a less-expensive alternative to Williamsburg have recently invaded this neighborhood, which was once a farmland with a mostly Polish population. Many spacious apartments and lofts are listed at a reasonable price.

Another factor that makes Greenpoint popular is that it is a safe community. Even at night, the streets are quiet but that is mostly because there is little nightlife compared to Williamsburg.

However, a few pubs are worth checking out like the Diamond Bar, which specializes in special brews and shuffleboard games. There is also the Pencil Factory, Enid, and Matchless, which have a laid-back atmosphere and serve good food.

Several Greenpoint restaurants offer a bit of variety such as Anella's, which specializes in Italian cuisine. Anyone with a taste for something fresh may want to check out Brooklyn Label or Boneshakers.

As there are still generations of Polish immigrants, in Greenpoint is a restaurant that reflects the culture, right down to the old-world farmhouse style building. Karczma serves Polish dishes and ambiance at its Greenpoint Avenue location. The décor, music, and even the wait staff will take visitors back into another time with great food at a nice price.

Graham Avenue and surrounding streets have many independent shops that sell vintage clothing and more. Greenpoint also has some coffee shops like Cafe Grumpy or Variety on Graham Avenue that is ideal for relaxing. The Word Bookstore also has a great selection of books and often hosts readings and other literary events.

Getting around Greenpoint is limited to the G line and is best used on weekdays. Otherwise, several bus lines may be considered an alternative for weekend travel.

Greenpoint is also something of a celebrity as scene from movies such as The Departed has been filmed here, as well as many HBO programs.
