A guide to local favorites in Greenpoint
- Photos by
Greenpoint gives you a world of charming old-Brooklyn culture and Polish heritage, while leaving you within a stone’s throw of all the goings-on just south, in adjacent Williamsburg. Escape the buzz of the latter by chilling in McCarren Park and eating traditional Polish pierogies to your heart’s content. When the weather is nice, pick up doughnuts from Peter Pan and stroll through all the boutiques down Franklin Street to enjoy the calm of this time-warped neighborhood.
