Franklin Guesthouse is located in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn; a waterfront neighborhood just north of Williamsburg with an influx of hip eateries, critically acclaimed restaurants, trendy bars and lounges, fashion forward shops, and tree-laden parks. Greenpoint is coined as the pressure valve for Williamsburg’s gentrified excesses, and the neighborhood is an epicenter for hipsters, artist, and musicians alike. As a result, the neighborhood retains its authentic Brooklyn identity of artistry and craftsmanship, a strong sense of community, and a palpable vibe. Film and television productions are primarily based out of the neighborhood, including HBO's Boardwalk Empire, who built its waterfront set on the Greenpoint banks of the East River.
