Brooklyn Book Project : Greenpoint Waterfront

I have been shooting along the Greenpoint waterfront lately. I wanted to explore the area while all the streets leading down to the river are still open and raw. Its what Williamsburg used to be before all the real estate developers started closing off the side streets and building all the luxury condos and commercial space. Its only a matter of time before that happens in Greenpoint as well and all its original character is gone.
