The Best Holiday Lights In All of NYC—You Need To See Them
Bask in the holiday season with a romantic evening stroll through the Greenpoint holiday lights. The story behind this one is special: shop owners of Manhattan Avenue raised funds to decorate from Driggs to Greenpoint Avenue after it had been dark since 2013. This Polish neighborhood will make you feel like you’ve left NYC and taken a trip to a small European town. Check out this article for some history on the lights, and stop in some of the Polish shops along the way to pick up some authentic kielbasa.
Start off at Driggs Avenue and finish your walk at local pizzeria, Paulie Gee’s. It doesn’t get much better than wood-fired pizza with all natural, local ingredients on a chilly evening. Read through their creatively named pizza menu and you’ll be sure to have a laugh, with pizzas like the Ricotta Be Kiddin’ Me and Porkypineapple. They're walk-in only, so there will probably be a wait. Plus, they’ve arguably got some of the best vegan pizza options in Brooklyn like the Vegan Grapeful Dead, and the Red, White and Greenpeace.
