Greenpoint’s charming combination of vibrant culture, rich heritage, and small-town feel give it a unique and desirable quality. Some describe it as a calmer and slightly less expensive Williamsburg, but to many this description misses much of what makes Greenpoint so attractive in its own right. A large Polish population gives the neighborhood a reputation for having the best Polish food in New York City. Residents rave about the flavors and aromas of pierogis, kielbasa, stuffed cabbage, and potato pancakes found in authentic restaurants all over the neighborhood (A trip to eat at Lomzynianka is a must). Local bars also receive a great deal of praise for having a vibrant nightlife without the preoccupation of always needing to assert their trendiness.
Public transportation in the area consists mainly of the bus lines and the G train (which connects to the L for Manhattan commuters), though some residents have been known to walk to the Bedford L stop to take a direct route into the city.
