Greenpoint, Brooklyn is home to a long and rich history. Originally settled by the Keskachauge Native Americans, Greenpoint was bought in 1638 by Dutch settlers. Known for its excellent wildlife and greenery, the area was quickly made into farmland. By the time the revolutionary war hit, there were only five families living in the area, though that number would soon grow as a ferry was introduced and roads were built. By the 19th century, Greenpoint was quick to industrialize and became well known for its ship-building, its oil refineries and its factories, which brought in large numbers of immigrants, especially those of Polish descent. As time passed and ships grew in lower demand, these buildings became storage spaces, event spaces, or modernized into something else entirely. Because of its long history and early colonization, Greenpoint, like many parts of the northeast, is home to dozens of historical buildings and has a slew of varied architecture, making it an interesting and unique place to film. Despite being located against the East River, and thus being blessed with beautiful skyline views of Manhattan, Greenpoint is still relatively isolated from the rest of the big city. The only train that stops here, the G train, is the only train that does not go into Manhattan, and it leaves the area relatively quiet, with low street traffic. The neighborhood is spacious enough that buildings do not need to be stacked upon one another, which allows for open space that is hard to come by in New York City. Despite this, Greenpoint is a hip and trendy neighborhood, with a wide variety of shops and restaurants, and has been dubbed by some the ‘New Williamsburg”. It’s no wonder why many choose Greenpoint as a home to their films, shows and other projects.
