Brick Buildings in Greenpoint Neighborhood of Brooklyn


 I took the subway out to Greenpoint yesterday. I was a hot, muggy day, so I didn’t cover a lot of territory, but it looked like there was a lot of fine architecture and building in the neighborhood. It’s the northernmost part ofBrooklyn. I got back on a ferry — cool on the water.

  1. I never appreciated brick as much as I do now, living where there are no brick buildings at all. Thanks for the visuals!
