Brooklyn Home in Historic Greenpoint

Brooklyn Home in Historic GrreenpointBecome a true New Yorker! This pristine three bedroom unfurnished three bedroom is available for a minimum of six months.  Only 15 minutes during rush hour by subway from Manhattan, it is located on tiny two-block long Milton Street, also known as the Street of Three Spires: the massive 1875 Saint Anthony of Padua Cathedral in maroon and white brick, Saint John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church completed in 1891, and a water tower decorated with a Polish flag and a “Save the Palestine” sign.  Remarkably, there are two more religious buildings on this small street.  The AIA Guide to New York City describes the bracketed canopies of the 1889 St. John’s Parish House as “lusty celebrations of entry.” The Greenpoint Dutch Reformed Church located in the former 1867 house of Thomas C. Smith has an interesting history in that Smith was the founder of Union Porcelain Works, the premier fine china and porcelain makers of the century.  All in all, this is a cheerful street of brick, limestone and terra cotta houses with front gardens and varied architectural detail. 

As a result of its generations of immigrant communities and now artists spilling over from nearby Williamsburg, this stable yet trendy waterfront community is attracting students, professionals and families.  Many restaurants are clustered along Nassau and Manhattan Avenues.  Nightlife includes Enid’s on Manhattan Avenue and The Polish National Home on Driggs Avenue doubles as a rock music site.  The City gave A’s to the three local public elementary schools.

At 35 acres, McCarren Park is the neighborhood’s largest recreational area. The park has tennis courts, athletic fields for children and adults, handball, bocce, basketball, playgrounds, and a recently resurfaced quarter-mile running track.

Summer events include a weekly flea market through July 31st and weekly outdoor movies.
