Greenpoint, Brooklyn is only accessible via the G train (or the ferry), but it’s certainly worth crossing the river for. A bunch of new restaurants, buzzworthy watering holes and highly-praised tattoo shops have recently opened in the nabe. And the area is rich with some of the best vintage stores, too. Best of all, this northern territory of Brooklyn still maintains its traditional charm with its historic buildings, waterfront views and large population of Polish natives (and the Polish restaurants are ahh-mazingwhen you're craving pierogi and borscht).
