I love Greenpoint! There's a lot of character in the neighborhood. It's a recently gentrified area, fluxed with affordable and charming cafes, restaurants, and plan shops.

Greenpoint is lovely. It is super safe and varies from totally residential, to sprawling with shops and restaurants. There is a wonderful choice of bars, as well. The local Polish culture has for the most part been preserved, so for those of us that love pierogi, there are opportunities to eat Polish food, in addition to reading, communicating, and learning in Polish.
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.
