In 2020, some of the top Brooklyn, New York neighborhoods included Williamsburg, Red Hook, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, South Slope, Park Slope, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, Gowanus, Prospect Heights, Sunset Park and Windsor Terrace.
Topping the list for 2021, after a life changing pandemic hit our city according to Streeteasy, Greenpoint is now#1 on the list of top Brooklyn neighborhoods.
Daily commuters who settled in Brooklyn before the pandemic did not necessarily favor Greenpoint with one subway line, the G train or the Ferry from India Street into Manhattan. That has changed dramatically in favor Greenpoint since many jobs have gone virtual.
According to Nancy Wu, Streeteasy economist, a lot of Manhattan residents are moving to the outer boroughs, especially to Brooklyn. Wu says “Greenpoint saw a 67% surge in searches on Streeteasy from 2019 to 2020 showing a clear increase in demand.
While rents in Greenpoint declined approximately 2% from 2019 and not being that much lower than Manhattan rents, Greenpoint offers larger spaces and a much better value than Manhattan.
Greenpoint has it all, an authentic atmosphere that is a mix of old and new, great dining and shopping options, a wide range of lifestyle choices whether buying or renting, a vibrant nightlife and Greenpoint is a wonderfully diverse melting pot of people and cultures.
Streeteasy's 8 out of the lists top 10 spots belong to Brooklyn.
Other Brooklyn neighborhoods of note are Prospect Lefferts Gardens in the #2 spot and Flatbush in the #4 spot.
