Great neighborhood to live in! Quiet and residential, but a 5-10 minute walk from Williamsburg which is full of night life and exciting events. Great neighborhood for kids with meany great schools and parks. Right by the water where you get a great view of the Manhattan skyline. Amazing food- from up and coming trendy restaurants to classic dinners, and local Polish cuisine spots as old as the neighborhood itself. Lots of public transportation available and only one stop away from Manhattan or Queens. A great central location with out unreasonable rent prices.

Progressive. Lot of white hipsters who can't afford Williamsburg. ISafe. Convenient buses. Love the park midsized. there. Easily accessed by bike from Western Queens (Sunnyside by bridge; LIC by ferry, 1 stop?). Main drawback is commuting to work if you work in uptown Manhattan. The G train is only really useful in Brooklyn and you will always need to transfer when using the L. You may need 2-3 trains and possibly a bus for your uptown manhattan commutes.
There’s no doubt Williamsburg has a Smorgasburg of options when it comes to food, the good old fashioned home cooking, Polish style. Greenpoint knows no shortage of eastern European cuisine like pierogies to kielbasa. The traditional Polish dishes can be found lining Manhattan Avenue.
