My opinion, I think it is a crappy looking neighborhood.

Doesn't mean it isn't safe or fun or convenient, I just think looking around the neighborhood, it is really crappy looking

My nephew's been living there for ten years or so, even before the hipsters knew about it. I like the neighborhood and have always felt safe there. There is still a significant Polish population in Greenpoint which is quite noticeable along Manhattan Avenue. If you drive, parking there is surprisingly easy, at least compared to Bay Ridge where I live.
