  1. Greenpoint was a great place to leave before the newcomers arrived. It did not need “ gentrification”. It was safe and affordable . It had Polish frestaurants, meatmarkets, and bakeries. There are very few left due to high rents and the exodus of Polish residents.
    There were Hispanic residents on the other side of Greenpoint Ave.
    that also had to leave due to high rents. Where do people go when rents are so high everywhere? No wonder there are so many homeless people.

  2. A bakery was there in the 50s where they would bake jelly donuts, apple turnovers, bread in the cellar and the items would come up on a lift. Loaf of rye bread Sliced. Three cream donuts. 1en cents
