Transformations: The Hipsterization of Greenpoint
A decade ago, Greenpoint, the northern most part of Brooklyn, New York, was home to a thriving immigrant community – a mixture of Poles and Latinos, legal and undocumented.
In the years since, the neighbourhood has transformed not once, but twice. First came the arty hipsters scene and now gentrification has turned old industrial sites into residential developments with rents almost as expensive as Manhattan.
Worth watching just for the droll commentary of Mieszko Kalita, owner of Beata Delicatessen.
