After living in NYC for 10 years I'm somewhat embarrassed to say that I've never been to this part of the city. One of the benefits I've come to appreciate about taking photos of New York families is that I find myself in neighborhoods I might never have seen otherwise. This is a cool little section of Greenpoint. Transmitter Park has piers that take you out over the river for some expansive Manhattan views. The blocks surrounding are filled with street art and textural, industrial scapes. And there's a great bookstore with good finds for little ones. I might want to move here.
