Greenpoint is a mixture of residential and industrial streets. This brooklyn neighborhood's residential real estate  consists of Brownstones, three and four story row houses and aluminum sided low rise houses.

Interestingly, Greenpoint is also referred to as the "garden spot of America" according to the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper. Just like most other Brooklyn neighborhoods during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries Greenpoint was primarily farmland.In the mid 1800's Greenpoint was a hub for shipbuilding.

In the late 1800's streets and lots were methodically laid out parallel to the river from north to south. Kent street, one block north of Greenpoint Avenue now consists of many newly built high and low rise condominiums as well as early nineteenth century flats, wood frame houses and masonry row houses.

Greenpoint's historic district, for example on Norman, Driggs and Manhattan Avenues consists of a mix of buildings that show the diversity of the neighborhood's history for example the Russian Orthodox Cathedral  of the Transfiguration of The Lord at Driggs Avenue and North 12th Street. In 1939 the Kosciuszko Bridge opened in Greenpoint.

Both Greenpoint and Williamsburg became known for printing,pottery, petroleum and gas refining, glassmaking and iron making.

Greenpoint has the largest Polish American population in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut combined.
