Neighborhood Profile

Slightly cheaper and more removed than its hip cousin, Williamsburg (due to the necessity of changing trains when commuting to/from Manhattan, although most of Greenpoint is still just a short walk from the Bedford L stop), Greenpoint wins in the cheaper rent department and is generally more tranquil than its hip neighbor to the south. 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.

Apartments & Buildings

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.
