Greenpoint Real Estate

A true waterfront neighborhood, Greenpoint has everything an area needs to keep growing, appreciating in value, and attracting new residents.

Larger than one thinks, Greenpoint is actually three or four different neighborhoods, all of which have distinct differences and commonalities. Near McCarren Park, the professional quotient runs high. So do the new restaurants, outdoor cafes, and bars. Closer to the water, new developments take over. But so does chic retail. All along Franklin Street, eateries draw artists, writers, and musicians as well as many of the architects and graphic designers who call the Greenpoint home. Clothing and furniture boutiques are most prevalent here.

High-tech companies are coming to the waterfront, purchasing or renting former industrial warehouses for their New York or global headquarters. The ferry shuttles residents back and forth from Manhattan and up and down the East River.

Manhattan Avenue is a retail strip reminiscent of Sixth Avenue from 30 years ago. Mom and pop shops line up next to boutiques and beauty parlors next to butchers with Polish sausages hanging from the ceilings, indicative of the neighborhood's ethnic past. Peter Pan Donuts sells the top-rated cream donut in the city in an old-fashioned coffee shop with curved countertops.

Quiet streets off and around Monsignor McGolrick Park define the neighborhood's northern edge. Polish mansions, tall structures with eagles and other figurines, mark the buildings, all of which have large stairwells leading up to the front door and outdoor terraces. Smart investors or people looking to make a life in a strong neighborhood are always looking in Greenpoint.

CLASSICS AND INSIDE TIPS:

Shop: Alter Men and Alter Women. Clothing boutique unique to Greenpoint in form and fashion. It has loyal followers.

Do: Walk Greenpoint. Take Manhattan Avenue to the Greenpoint Avenue to Franklin Avenue to the waterfront. Stop along the way in the many shops and bars.

Dine: Krolewskie Jadlo. Polish food at its best. A glimpse into the neighborhood's history and flavors.
