Greenpoint became an industrial center during the 1830's - located at the confluence of Newtown Creek and the East River, the area was ideal for shipbuilding. The warship ""Monitor"", of Civil War fame, was built here by John Ericsson and launched on January 30, 1862. Greenpoint was eventually incorporated into the growing city of Brooklyn, which joined New York City in the late nineteenth century.Greenpoint was also home to A.C. Kingsland, a former mayor of New York City. Kingsland gave the town eight acres of land, which were Winthrop Park, after the town elder. Contemporary Greenpoint is still a lively immigrant community, 80% of whom are Polish immigrants or their descendants. Greenpoint also boasts the second largest artist community in New York City, as well as the lowest reported crime rate; the ""Northside"" has become home to chic restaurants and cafes. This hotel is fit for the budget-minded traveler."**Please be advised this is a hotel for the budget minded traveler.**
