This weekend I explored Greenpoint with Justin and found that the neighborhood has changed so much since I used to call it home. It is now littered with cafes, record shops and amazing small boutiques with great prices. Greenpoint has all of this including my favorite polish bakeries! Here are some pics of Alter, my favorite store in the area. They recently opened their women's store located across the street at 140 Franklin St. near Greenpoint Ave. The store carries mostly independent labels and mixes in some vintage. I f you are in town you must stop by, but if not check out their blog www.alterbrooklyn.blogspot.com, where you can shop through all of their merchandise!
