Greenpoint in Brooklyn in New York is a Polish neighbourhood.

Little Poland



Little Poland is an informal name for part of a neighborhood in Greenpoint, in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. The name Little Poland came to be applied to it following an influx of Polish immigrants after 1900. Earlier, several other places in New York City had been called Little Poland.

As described by The New York Times in a June 22, 1984, article: "Manhattan Avenue is the heart of what residents call Little Poland. There are Polish meat stores with strings of kielbasa, bakeries with Polish bread and babkas, supermarkets with Polish pickles, jams, dried soups and sauerkraut." The neighborhood is served by the NYPD's 94th Precinct.

Related neighborhoods

A similar neighborhood is Maspeth, due east, about two or three miles, in southern Queens. Historically Polish since 1890, the Broad Steet neighborhood in New Britain, Connecticut was designated Little Poland by the City Council in 2008 at the urging of the Polonia Business Association.

Other Polish neighbourhoods in New York are Ridgewood and Maspeth in Queens.

In the past the Lower East side of Manhattan attracted a lot of Polish immigrants, and was partly Polish.

Polish people live where ever they want..LOL, I grew up in Pa, south of Pittsburgh. I grew up on the polka music...a lot of weddings and boy do the Polish know how to put on a wedding. I have since moved out west in Montana and I have met a few polish people here too, but the weddings are nothing like they are back in Pa! I so miss them!
