Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Nestled next to Williamsburg neighborhood and the East River. Greenpoint is a quaint old polish neighborhood mixed with entrepreneurs and artist who have started there local businesses, making it a unique place to eat, shop, and enjoy Brooklyn. Calyer Street is between two subway stops, Greenpoint Ave & Nassau Ave on the G train. Both stops are located on Manhattan Avenue. It takes you about 5 minutes to walk in either direction. The L train is about a 10-15 minute walk depending on you pace. Both trains take you to Manhattan within 5-10 minutes of stepping into the car and connect you to all the main lines running north and south in Manhattan.
The neighborhood is quiet, very safe, and mainly consist of families, artist, and professionals. There is a police precinct a few blocks away in case that gives you comfort. The grocery store is located on the corner of Calyer Street and Manhattan Ave. Bodegas are almost on every corner for late night snacks and beer runs.
Two blocks away is the YMCA on Meserole & Lorimer St. if you feel like hitting the gym and revving up your cardio. They supply a 3 day guest pass and after that expires it is $15 per day.

There are two popular parks walking distance from the apartment. McCarren a local favorite hangout for sun bathers is four blocks away. This park has a running track, baseball fields, soccer field, dog park, and is surrounded by restaurants, shops, and bars. Several local artist will perform and display there work in outdoor exhibits. East River Park which is a lovely 10 minute stroll close to the water is located next to the East River. It's walking distance and it's great for picnics, reading, soaking up some rays, playing frisbee, bbqing, etc. This park host the famous free Pool Party Concerts over the summer. It's one of my favorite places to relax by the water. The main street that takes you to the East River Park is Kent Ave. It's a great walk to see some of Brooklyn's street art and graffiti.
