Right above Williamsburg, this northern Brooklyn neighborhood is a haven for artists and working professionals.
It is particularly close to Queens’ Long Island City. Known for possessing the second largest population of Polish-Americans in the United States, the neighborhood is referred as “Little Poland.”
Today, Greenpoint is the location of two New York City parks, one of which is McCarren Park- the neighborhood’s largest green space. There is also the more intimate McGolrick Park, where visitors can find a winged monument dedicated to 150 local residents who served in World War I.
