greenpoint textures

One afternoon before a screening at Light Industry, I took a walk around Greenpoint, a neighborhood I don't spend much time in since I live in Brooklyn's south. The nesting of small cities within the city is one of my favorite aspects of NYC — its size and density may encourage most people to maintain a fairly defined radius, yet it also allows one to escape from familiarity now and then with a slightly longer subway ride. 

Greenpoint has evolved greatly from when I first came to the city a decade ago. It's hipper and in some places shinier, yet still maintains its rough edges and worn, industrial heart.
