Manhattan Ave is Greenpoint's Financial District
With the recent opening of Bank of America (in the former Jennifer Leather/Convertables store), there are now several banks on Manhattan Avenue. It almost seems like there are more banks in the 5 block stretch from Greenpoint Avenue to Norman Avenue than the most bank-dense stretches in Manhattan. Starting from the north, there's HSBC, Citibank, Bank of America, Dime Savings Bank, North Fork (formerly Greenpoint Bank), Chase, Apple Bank, and Sovereign/Independence Bank (the only bank between Meserole Avenue and Norman). It's possible that I've even missed one. There's also an H&R Block for all of Greenpoint's tax needs!

I'm in Brookly - over here it's nail salons and synagogues as opposed to banks (or Starbucks).

At least the Polish & Slavic credit union tried.
