Greenpoint is in transition. Although Brooklyn’s northernmost neighborhood retains much of its gritty industrial allure, an influx of residents over the past two decades has altered the area’s character, bringing new faces to what was once a predominantly Polish-American immigrant community.

Gentrification in Greenpoint has occurred at a relatively modest pace, which has made for an intriguing mix of old and new businesses, side by side, that appeal to a range of interests.

How to get there: Greenpoint is accessible via the G train, the only New York City subway line that does not enter Manhattan. Farther away but still within walking distance is the Bedford Avenue stop on the L train; stroll north from there through McCarren Park to reach the heart of the neighborhood.

Galleries and Art Studios

Businesses in the area are constantly hosting open-mic nights, poetry readings and pop-up art exhibitions. Near the waterfront, Calico Brooklyn , located in one of the rehabbed buildings of Greenpoint Terminal Market, showcases works by emerging and established artists.
