Greenpoint

Brooklyn’s best kept secret

Greenpoint is the northernmost neighborhood in Brooklyn, with Williamsburg on the south and the East River waterfront on the west. Historically, Greenpoint was home to the bulk of New York’s china, porcelain, and glass industries, with recent developments transforming old factories into art galleries and lofts. 

As Greenpoint has become a more prominent community in Brooklyn, new high-rise residential developments now dot the East River along West Street and Franklin Avenue, the continuation of Kent Avenue, with waterfront parks and innovative food and beverage concepts supporting the local community. Manhattan Avenue serves as the main corridor of Greenpoint. Running parallel to the G train, Manhattan Avenue incorporates a mix of mom-and-pop shops and national retailers. Today’s residents are drawn to Greenpoint due to new developments like Green Point Landing, which boasts a waterfront promenade, adding to the bountiful greenspace acreage across this classic North Brooklyn neighborhood.
