Greenpoint

Brooklyn’s northernmost neighborhood, Greenpoint is known for its Polish heritage and waterfront views. While not quite within the brownstone belt, Greenpoint’s housing stock is quaint and historic, with plenty of townhouses mixed in with the old factories and new condo towers. Architectural highlights in the neighborhood include a plethora of landmarked churches as well as New York’s oldest continuously operating public school. Be sure to try the pierogies.
