Neighborhood Profile

Location: Northwestern Brooklyn. In fact, Greenpoint sits exactly in the north-western corner of Brooklyn. To the north lies the borough of Queens, to the west - the East River. Character: Slightly cheaper and more removed than its hip cousin, Williamsburg (due to the necessity of changing trains when commuting to/from Manhattan), Greenpoint wins in the cheaper rent department and is generally more tranquil than its hip neighbor to the south. Greenpoint is still just a short walk from the Bedford L stop.

The neighborhood still has many Polish stores and ethnic shops featuring Polish signs and wares. Most streets are quite nice and have a "neighborhoody" feel, but for the edgier folk there's a small industrialized section as well. McCarren Park park is huge, lush, and great for picnics. Demographics: Traditionally a blue-collar Polish neighborhood, Greenpoint has been attracting a new demographic as those wishing to live in Williamsburg but unable to swing the increasing rent costs have formed a new colony in Greenpoint.

Apartments & Real Estate

Apartments are generally in older houses. As in Williamsburg, the electricity can be shoddy (check the wiring before renting, especially if you are the work-at-home type and are going to need a quite a few outlets), but you definitely get more for your money in Greenpoint. Apartments are slightly bigger, but can also be really old. This could be a bad thing if things don't function properly or a good thing as moldings, woodworking, etc can add character to your home.
