We get it. You relate to “Girls.” You want to be the voice of a generation. So, naturally, you set your eyes to Hannah Horvath’s stomping grounds to get your journey underway: Greenpoint, Brooklyn. But as you step off the G train and out into Little Poland, you quickly realize that there’s more to Greenpoint than what you’ve seen on TV—or on your laptop using your friend’s cousin’s roommate’s HBO Go account. You’re not in Manhattan anymore, and you’re feeling a tad overwhelmed. You’ll first curse the G train, because it’s the G train. Next, you’ll aim a couple of snarky tweets at Lena Dunham for drawing you away from your 32-hour “Game of Thrones” binge and out into the real world. Then, you’ll finally open up Google Maps.
Now before you go any further, pause. Look up from your iPhone for a second, and take it all in. The sights. The sounds. The smells. Do you feel that? It’s time for an adventure.
You’ve accompanied us to Battery Park City, to Brooklyn Bridge Park, to Coney Island, and to Staten Island. You know the rules. Put that thing back where it came from. Grab a bottle of water and a disposable camera. Tighten up your shoe laces, because today, NYU Local gets lost in Greenpoint.
