Things to do on the Greenpoint
Greenpoint is hip: so hip that a local Greenpoint grocery store was recently the backdrop for a Harpers Bazaar photo shoot for an upcoming magazine cover, with a scantily clad Gwyneth Paltrow posing with a gallon of milk in the frozen food aisle. If you don’t think that’s hip, Bill Murray sent social media into a flurry when he was caught bartending at the recently opened 21 Greenpoint. But you don’t need celebrities to be cool. In Greenpoint, there’s a laundromat that doubles as a bar, and an old Polish banquet hall was transformed into a bazaar where you can play ping pong, listen to your favorite bands and enjoy some karaoke.
