No. 5
Greenpoint


It would be disingenuous to continue describing Greenpoint as Williamsburg’s idyllic, under-the-radar northern neighbor. And though it might be painful for those of us who live there, the (still) staunchly Polish riverside locale, perpetually energized by the bustling old Brooklyn vibe of Manhattan Avenue, is fast becoming the prime destination for starry-eyed interlopers in search of the mythical new Brooklyn. But that’s what happens when you have a blossoming bar and restaurant scene (and some great boutiques) interlaced through quiet, leafy streets. BONUS POINTS: lots of blintzes, and the impending rebirth of the Newtown Creek.
