Fodor's Review

Landmarked in 1982, this historic district is lined with beautiful town houses. The area extends roughly from Calyer Street north to Kent Street, between Manhattan Avenue and Franklin Street. The brick homes date to the 1850s, when Greenpoint was a major hub for shipbuilding and the manufacturing. Walking along Franklin Street, north of Greenpoint Avenue, it's easy to feel like you've stepped into an Edward Hopper painting.
