We were really pissed when we saw this post by Brooklyn Magazine that said, “Greenpoint looks like the poorest, most dangerous neighborhood in New York City” based on the results of a stupid poll of people judging neighborhoods based on google street view images. Everyone know those photos are lame.

Last week was such a hard week for us here in 11222, and it felt like they were kicking us while we were down. Let’s show all those bozos who thought Greenpoint is a dump that it is really charming in it’s own gritty and colorful way!

If you follow us on Instagram send the following hashtags #beautiful_greenpointers #greenpointers to @greenpointers.

On Flickr add it to the Greenpointers Flickr Pool.

Stay gorgeous, Greenpoint!

  1. Hi,
    I grew up in “The Point” and occasionally wander back for good kielbasa and to photograph some of the spots where I lived, owned a business and played. I have over 100 photos of Greenpoint posted on Face Book. This is the link and I know I have more that I will scale down and email to you. Feel free to take and share all you want.
    Dee =)
