Greenpoint, Brooklyn

March 31, 2010

I was drawn to Greenpoint originally because of in the Polish community, something I thought I might connect to because of my family ancestry, even though the percentage of Jewish Pols in the area had decreased tremendously. After speaking with locals, like the Catholic priest Father Czok and Earl, the coffee shop local, it turns out that the area had changed dramatically, and now Greenpoint was much more of a global melting pot than it ever was before.

Man- Are you a photographer?

Me- Yes, Im doing a project on Greenpoint.

Man- Are you Polish? (suspicious tone)

Me- Yes….

Man- are you Jewish? (very suspicious tone)

Me- I am..

Man- ME TOO!

Me- Wow! Have you lived here long?

Man- SHABBAT SHALOM! (and then he RAN away!)
