All of my friends who haven’t been priced out of Greenpoint have made the strategic decision to never leave their apartments. And with a view like this, overlooking Manhattan Ave, Nassau Ave and the city skyline, why ever leave?
Everyone goes nuts about the Cherry Blossoms, but the true stunners are the Magnolia Trees, which make the most glorious giant pink and white flowers that only last a week. My last apartment in Greenpoint had a huge Magnolia in the yard and when it bloomed last spring we had a punch party to celebrate. These photos are dedicated to my Mom and Dad who took me to Brooklyn Botanic Gardens an infinite amount of times as a kid.
