6. Corner Frenzy (995 Manhattan Avenue)
For a creative local business, Corner Frenzy in Greenpoint is actually an ice cream/empanada stand in front. There are windows to serve pedestrians directly on the street and countertops inside for the laundry customers. The owner’s daughter, Miriam Benavides, wanted to open up her own store when her mother offered her a portion of the store. She continues to run the concession stand but tells me it’ll open again when it gets warmer.
This list is by no means complete, just a few I’ve come across. What are your favorite spots?
