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.

Selamat Pagi

If you’re a vegetarian, or you just like to eat kind of healthy sometimes, and you enjoy vacations you don’t have to pay for, you should know about Selamat Pagi.

Di An Di

This Vietnamese restaurant is incredible. We’d suggest you bring friends to tackle as much of the menu as you can.


Great especially in summer, beer garden Spritzenhaus will quench your thirst with draft beer, euro-style foods, and board games.

WNYC Transmitter Park

This waterfront park has incredible views of the Manhattan skyline at this quiet spot on the East River.

The Greenpoint Gallery

The Greenpoint Gallery is a non-profit arts organization focused on emerging artists and offering classes, lectures, career counseling and affordable exhibition space.


The menu is big, with options ranging from ceviches to tacos to a giant grilled ribeye – but don’t miss the corn tlayuda.
