First Fruit A neighbour to hip Williamsburg, Greenpoint is at the epicenter of Brooklyn's flourishing art scene. Be part of this fertile ground in this stunning glass-fronted apartment. Plant a seed in luminous living quarters where Queen Anne furnishings and antique portraiture thrive alongside retro tangerine basket chairs and contemporary architectural design. Ecologists Tending this Eden are a husband and wife team, a filmmaker and textile designer, whose careful eye and endless creativity has helped nurture this urban arcadia. Biosphere Start your organic exploration in the spacious kitchen where under lit units and mint-hued walls overlook a long spread of countertop where there's plenty of room to experiment with nature's rich bounty. Plough a furrow past the round-topped dining table and open staircase and find yourself in the light-filled sitting room where floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate an explosion of house plants. Root down on muted avocado lounge chairs and cushioned sofas where you can admire a beautiful collection of antique portraits or recline with a cutting from the fecund array of books in the library. Experience a climate change with a hot soak in the tiled master bathroom. Then, when the New York night beckons, make a natural selection of your evening wear in the master bedroom where a cool white queen-size bed look out on to the quaint tree-lined street below. Land of Plenty Greenpoint may just be Brooklyn's best kept secret. Its converted warehouses are home to artsy bars like The Pencil Factory, once a social club for Longshoremen when shipyards crammed the waterfront here. The borough still retains much of its original character. With the G line just a few blocks from your doorstep, the heart of downtown Manhattan is a short ride away.
