Five reasons to visit Greenpoint, Brooklyn
For brunch, my ultimate favorite in Greenpoint isGlasserie.
They do an amazing seasonal mezze brunch that is so fun to enjoy with a group of friends. For drinks,Archilles Heel
is a must. It’s off the beaten track in Greenpoint and makes you feel like you’ve found a true treasure. From the crew behindMarlow & Sons
, it’s a bar that makes you feel cooler than you are – sipping on a whiskey, tucked away in a private booth, with an amazing soundtrack humming in the background.
Yes, donuts get their own separate section. It’s not a trip to Greenpoint without indulging in donuts and coffee atPeter Pan
. I love sitting at the counter of this old-school bakery, pretending it’s the 1950s.
The Wythe Hotel is where I recommend my out of town friends and family to stay. It has the right amount of boutique charm, an amazing rooftop bar, and a great restaurant. Its technically in North Williamsburg, but it makes for the perfect location to walk through the park into all your Greenpoint adventures.
I absolutely loveHomecoming
, a coffee shop / plant and home store. They have great coffee and the sweetest bouquets, which make you want to fill your home with flowers.Dream Fish and Tackle
is my favorite for vintage home and furniture finds in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, plus records – and fish and tackle! This is a father-daughter run operation and lends itself to some serious treasure hunting.
The thing to do
New Love City
is a great yoga studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The instructors all have different styles and I’ve learned to love each one of them. The serene space is so gorgeous that half the time, my mind ends up wandering to imagine how I would design the studio if it were my own apartment. A girl can dream!
