"Eckford is one of the nicer places here"
Eckford Street is one of the nicer streets in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The good thing about this street is that the street itself is a nice quiet place to live in and it is very close to shopping. Two blocks over is Manhattan Ave which is filled with all kinds of shops and retsaurants. The poepl are very friendly here, ranging from young kids to seniors. Mainly Polish area it is now being populated by non-polish residents which makes the place diverse and very interesting to say the least. Very close to groceries, right next to schools (Catholic and public), parks and nightlife.
