Greenpoint Reviews

All Categories
I was raised in this neighborhood all my life. It is special to me. It is a a calm neighborhood and has great public transportation of many trains and buses. The public schools are alright especially the elementary schools. I remember going to one in particular and it brings back fond memories. The thing with Greenpoint though is that it is really expensive. The gentrification here is nothing to sneeze about, so I can see why people move in and then leave. As for me I was always here but many friends of mine had to move out due to rent prices. It's a pity since it's a nice neighborhood.
Review Greenpoint
Greenpoint, Brooklyn has changed from a sleepy Polish "hamlet" into a vibrant and trendy neighborhood, taking after its big sister Williamsburg. The neighborhood has great restaurants, bars but is also nice for families. Lots of supermarkets and cafes as well. The only drawback is that the commute can be brutal depending on where you are headed (i.e. commuting to the UES required 3 trains and sometimes a bus...) and I imagine will only get worse once the L train shuts down. If you want to live in a fun neighborhood that still has quiet pockets to live, you found it.
Since a very young age I been living in Greenpoint and I love it. It has great schools, environment, and entertainments all near by.
