Situated in Brooklyn’s northernmost corner, bridging the popular enclaves of Williamsburg and Long Island City, Greenpoint is an eclectic star in the North Brooklyn neighborhood constellation. A somewhat sleepy industrial neighborhood for much of the 20th century, Greenpoint was settled by Polish immigrants who came here to work along the waterfront nearly a century ago. In the 21st century, having been made irreversibly famous by the hit TV series Girls, it has become one of the most desirable residential areas in Brooklyn.
Your guide to Greenpoint, this way
The Driggs Haus at 247 Driggs Avenue is a 23,500-square-foot condominium building developed by Greenpoint Luxury Development LLC (who purchased the three-story structure that previously stood on the site for $950,000 in 2013) with Gertler & Wente Architects handling the design. The project, situated at the corner of Graham and Driggs Avenues near McCarren Park, has been slow to wrap up construction, with its topped-off concrete frame shrouded in netting for some time now. Ultimately, there will be 19 homes spread throughout the project’s five floors, and a soon-to-be-launched website marketing the units brings us a handful of new images and details.
