Around the Block
A revitalized post-industrial neighborhood.
Greenpoint has long been an industrial maritime neighborhood, and the home to Polish and Irish immigrants beginning in the late 1800s. Shipbuilding, glasswork, and pencil manufacturing were the big businesses in the area until World War II. Today however, Greenpoint has shed its reputation as an industrial neighborhood in exchange for one as a leader in Brooklyn's new artistic scene.
