Greenpoint
There have been three major waves of immigration from Poland in Greenpoint (Brooklyn), and the neighborhood is still considered New York’s “Little Poland.” The first wave came during the early 19th century, the second after World War I, and the final wave post-World War II. A more recent influx of Polish immigration, after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact, secured the neighborhood as a Polish enclave. Today, it’s not uncommon to find three generations of family members living in the community.
