In the northernmost part of Brooklyn is the cozy little neighborhood of Greenpoint. Originally farmland, Greenpoint is a paradox – part small town charm, part busy city. Stroll along Greenpoint Avenue or Franklin Street and you might as well be in the heart of Main Street USA. But no manner of brick townhomes, church steeples or Dutch bakeries can hide its stunning view of Midtown Manhattan just across the East River.
Greenpoint – Residence Styles
Now is the time to buy in Greenpoint. In a borough where real estate pricing seems to do nothing but skyrocket, Greenpoint is the exception. Expect a neighborhood of primarily townhouses, apartments and small one- or two-family houses. Apartments are much more affordable than other parts of Brooklyn and even units along the East River offer Manhattan views without the Manhattan price.
Greenpoint – Transportation
Commuting from Greenpoint can get a little tricky since there are no direct train lines into Manhattan. But with easy access to subway hubs from its Greenpoint Avenue and Nassau Avenue stations on the G train, the commuting time only averages a typical Brooklyn 35 minutes. Above ground, New York City bus routes B24, B32, B43, B48 and B62 briskly speed through Greenpoint and into adjacent Brooklyn neighborhoods.
