It may be known as Williamsburg’s low-key neighbor, but Greenpoint knows how to impress. Spend a day hitting up these Brooklyn cultural gems, and find more inspiration in The Guide.

ADMIRE: Large-Scale Masterpieces at Faurschou New York

The Faurschou Foundation’s inaugural group show, “The Red Bean Grows in the South,” touches on the everlasting theme of hope and longing. (Rumor has it that experiential works from Ai Weiwei are included in the collection!) 148 Green Street

EAT: Rustic Cucina at Le Fanfare

Love carbs as much as we do? You can’t go wrong with any of the off-the-menu pasta specials here (all homemade, all $10, and all worth the two-hour gym session you’ll have to put in the following day). 1103 Manhattan Avenue

DRINK: Shrubs and Spritzes at Achilles Heel

Andrew Tarlow’s early-20th-century–inspired tavern and mini grocery store offers a daily-changing menu of seasonal delights. Oh, and there’s a piano here, too, so loosen up those digits and perhaps they’ll let you play! 180 West Street
