The new Williamsburg! The next Hip area to hang out! Greenpoint has it all! From the amazing view of the manhattan line scape from the water front to hip & trendy bars. Unlike Williamsburg or the city, Greenpoint has a laid back vibe that's also family friendly. A great neighborhood to live in.
Review Greenpoint
Greenpoint is a neighborhood that has drastically changed over the past recent years. Many new businesses have appeared along one of Greenpoint's most popular strips (Manhattan Avenue) with little of old Greenpoint remaining. While the level of safety and quality of public education has risen in this neighborhood, so has the cost of living (dramatically so). Its many parks and outdoor recreational spaces are ideal for families with children. It is a gorgeous place to live if you can afford the rent.
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.
