In the northern tip of Brooklyn serviced only by the G train lies Greenpoint, a neighborhood that offers cash-only pierogis and borscht, more than one verdant park, and an impressive number of boutiques.

While much of the neighborhood's 19th-century industrial past has been buried by brunch spots and bars, it's hard to spend time in the area without picking up the city's best donut from an old Polish bakery or finding that perfect nineties-era Calvin Klein dress in a converted warehouse.

Below, ten of the best Greenpoint stores for clothes and accessories that you can't miss during your next visit.

1. Wolves Within

Copy Link
174 Franklin St
Brooklyn, NY 11222
(347) 889-5798
Visit Website
Owned by a husband-and-wife team, this Brooklyn boutique highlights art, jewelry, and clothing from borough residents like cult-favorite Cold Picnic and jewelry from artist collaborations. But you'll also stumble upon small international brands like Objects Without Meaning, Swedish Hasbeens, and Libertine-Libertine.

2. Dusty Rose Vintage Warehouse

Copy Link
251 Greenpoint Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11222
This dig-through-the-bins vintage warehouse east of McGuinness Boulevard has some great, inexpensive finds for those willing to get shoulder-deep in clothes, but what makes this business stand out from all the vintage shops in the neighborhood are its events and pop-ups both in and out of the store. Keep an eye on its Instagram and Facebook pages for the latest installations and jewelry-making-with-cocktails workshops.

3. In God We Trust

70 Greenpoint Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11222
(718) 389-3545
Visit Website
Owner Shana Tabor has been at the helm of this boutique that sells locally-made jewelry, clothing, and accessories for more than a decade — a true mark of success for an indie boutique.Though the store has three locations in NYC (there's Williamsburg and Soho), this location is the flagship, where all the store's jewelry and majority of the clothing are made.

4. Alter

Copy Link
140 Franklin St
Brooklyn, NY 11222
(718) 349-0203
Visit Website
With brands like Cheap Monday, Native Youth, and Baggu, Alter is a relatively alt, mid-range boutique that caters to both men and women. There’s now a second location in Williamsburg, but this storefront has been on prime-location Franklin Street for nearly ten years — longer than most other shops on the block.

99 Franklin St
Brooklyn, NY 11222
With L:A Bruket soaps and lotions, Stutterheim raincoats, and designers like Won Hundred and and Kaibosh on the racks, this boutique has a distinct Scandinavian aesthetic with monochromatic and pastel-heavy collections that'll win over everybody.

Whereas the majority of Greenpoint’s vintage/consignment stores either lean toward a minimalist Scandinavian aesthetic or a that of a slightly kooky aunt, there’s something about People of 2morrow that comes off as distinctly Californian. Perhaps it’s the Andean incenses, the flowy caftans, or the African indigo mud cloths that make this shop feel relaxed, hippieish, and natural — but not at all trite.

7. Dobbin Street Vintage Co-op

Copy Link
37 Norman Ave
Brooklyn, NY
Were you to choose to squat and make a living in one Greenpoint store, this bright, spacious co-op would easily prove to be the most hospitable. With everything from bright orange velvet sofas to wicker wall hangings to forest green leather jackets, all vintage and all reasonably priced, this slightly out-of-the-way shop is worth the detour.

8. Loren

Copy Link
82 Nassau Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11222
(347) 529-5771
Visit Website
This tiny shop next to McCarren Park serves as owner Loren Cronk’s workshop and storefront, where he showcases his various handmade denim products (jeans, shirts, aprons, etc.), offers jean repair and alteration services, and sells an impressive collection of vintage finds. Recently, he had a full rack of vintage Levi denim shorts, all for under $40 — in other words, it was the Holy Grail of a Brooklyn woman’s summer wardrobe.

9. Mirth Vintage

606 Manhattan Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11222
(914) 714-1954
Visit Website
This small vintage boutique specializes in clothing from the 1920s through the 2000s, highlighting once-classic pieces that are fit to be staples in your wardrobe. Visit on the right day and you may find yourself with a herringbone coat from the 70s or satin platforms from the 90s.

10. Line & Label

568 Manhattan Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11222
(347) 384-2678
Visit Website
For a unique made-in-Greenpoint collection, head to Line & Label, where owner Kate O'Riley showcases her own apparel and handmade leather handbags alongside jewelry, clothing, and accessories from other Brooklyn makers. Definitely go for the leather goods here: the bags and clutches stick pretty close to the the $100-range.
