Free-spirited Greenpoint combines classic and new NYC attractions. Traditional Polish restaurants serve pierogi and borscht near sleek eateries that dish out modern cuisine. Inexpensive dive bars and cushy cocktail dens coexist in harmony, and small boutiques do business alongside massive vintage shops. Ask some Greenpoint residents, though, and they’ll tell you the neighborhood’s biggest draw is its coffee-and-doughnut scene—with 60-year-old Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop leading the pack.
Greenpoint is a neighborhood that celebrates the old and the new.
The traditionally Polish neighborhood offers a bounty of fresh fare—seafood, sweet treats and more.
Food, drink, shopping and more great finds just steps from your ferry stop.
This glorious, nine-plus acre neighborhood park will transport you to another place—or another era, even—thanks to sprawling lawns, grand arches, and two monuments that were restored in 1985: a World War I memorial and a sculpture dedicated to the battle of the ironclad ships Monitor and Merrimack during the Civil War.
For an establishment with an unassuming entrance and no signage to speak of, the so-called No Name Bar is many things at once: it’s a cozy local watering hole, a ramen restaurant serving authentic Japanese soups and an outdoor hangout in what is likely the neighborhood’s most spacious back garden.
