Descriptions of 159 Franklin St

Everything from cafes, juice bars, pubs, restaurants, housewares, hardware, shoe shoppes, clothing boutiques, organic green grocers, local butchers, young start-up companies, light-industrial machining workshops and manufacturing. It's not just the cool kids moving in, but it's fast becoming a hub to settle in and claim a long term stake in the neighborhood. 800+ square feet is rather unheard of at this price in this most envied of neighborhood blocks. Daniel Jarquio (Dec 2013)
It takes a little longer to reach always-on-the-move Manhattan from this northernmost Brooklyn neighborhood, but basking in Greenpoint's communal vibe is well worth the extra minutes. I have apartments available in the neighborhood and would love to help you out. Nicholas Doyle (Apr 2013)
Live on Greenpoint's Trendy Franklin Ave, With a Plethora of Bars, Cafes, Restaurants and Shops Right Outside and Only Steps Away From Trains, Busses And Ferries. Kathleen (Kat) McEldowney (Nov 2013)
Greenpoint has become one of the most desired area's in Brooklyn for it's quiet, tree-lined streets, sprawling parks, and world class dining and entertainment. Bustling with boutiques, coffee shops, and cool cocktail bars, Greenpoint is the new 'it' neighborhood in Brooklyn. Sam Stuckey (Jul 2014)
Bike lane, tree lined, pubs, restaurants, cafes and local grocery stores on EVERY CORNER, easy access to the ferry and the G train. Artur Sikora (Jul 2014)
