Worth The Trip: Greenpoint



At the northern tip of Brooklyn, just before Queens, tree-lined blocks and cobblestone streets make up a neighborhood called Greenpoint. However you get there—by foot, by train, or by ferry—you’ll find some of the city’s best dining upon arrival. From European excellence at Chez Ma Tante to Michelin-starred Mexican at Oxomoco, these restaurants are more than worth the trip. And with vintage shops and furniture stores, bakeries like Ovenly and Peter Pan Donut Shop, and views for days at WNYC Transmitter Park, Greenpoint offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with plenty to do in between.
