"A lovely, quiet street with a number of resident-friendly stops"

This is a great residential street that is also home to the local (also highly recommended) YMCA branch, a police station and Cafe Grumpy.

Though I have managed to find parking on this street more than once, the police station and their numerous vehicles tend to take up a lot of space. Therefore if you are a car owner it may be best not to live on this street unless you somehow score your own driveway. Greenpoint is one of those Brooklyn neighborhoods in which everyone seems to have a car and there is hardly any parking.

A lot of Polish can be heard spoken on this street - especially in the YMCA, which features amazing facilities including a huge indoor basketball court. The Y is across the street from Klub Europa of Brooklyn, the most popular Polish-American nightclub in the entire borough.

"Good for hipsters who like it a little more mellow"

I have been to this street to visit Cafe Grumpy. I was living in Manhattan at the time and happy to have a quiet Sunday in a less crowded neighborhood. If you live close to Manhattan Ave you will find it busier and easier to step out of your apartment right into a restaurant or bar. Even a few blocks away from these Avenues it is a lot quieter but still dotted with interesting cafes and shops. If you want something lush and dotted with trees, this street is not for you. Think pavement.
