My favorite part when discovering a new city is finding different neighborhoods and spotting various cute places to grab food, shop, or simply walk around. When I first moved to New York a few months ago, I knew Brooklyn was the new « place to be ». I had already been to Williamsburg and really enjoyed it but never had the occasion to explore other further areas and places in this neighborhood.
So here it is, just for you, a simple glimpse of another day spent in Brooklyn, but this time, in Greenpoint!
This neighborhood is one of the booming and trendy areas in Brooklyn. Just above Williamsburg and south of Long Island City, Greenpoint is a great option if you’re looking to spend a day away from the buzzing and noisy atmosphere of Manhattan and its never-ending skyscrapers. Here in Greenpoint, you’ll find a charming architecture and non-touristy quiet streets. This area is definitely a must-do if you’re looking to surround yourself with locals and experience the real Brooklyn.
Greenpoint is surrounded by delicious spots where you can grab a quick bite to eat, enjoy a drink (or two) with friends and find so many local tiny shops.
