Brooklyn’s northernmost neighborhood is called Greenpoint. Its character is very similar to its neighbor, Williamsburg, with massive high-rise towers on the waterfront and a mix of townhouses, warehouses and lofts farther inland. Greenpoint residents are people who love living in authentic Brooklyn.
The neighborhood’s boundaries are north of McCarren Park, south of Newtown Creek, and northwest of the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. The most desirable homes are on the waterfront and also near Manhattan Avenue, which is home to the neighborhood’s only train line: the G train. It’s important to keep in mind that the G train is the only train that does not stop in Manhattan. People who need to commute to Manhattan regularly might want to look elsewhere for their next home. On the other hand, people who don’t need to commute to Manhattan can find great deals in a neighborhood that’s full of character.
Other attractions include McGolrick Park, Bushwick Inlet Park, and the East River Ferry, which offers the most efficient way to commute from the neighborhood to Manhattan. The neighborhood has historically been referred to as Little Poland.
