Polish spoken here, along with poppy seed bread and sausages.

Greenpoint, Brooklyn, home to Polish immigrants, has a large community of Polish residents who frequent community restaurants and bakeries.  I listened to people order in their Polish language in each bakery and meat market I popped into.  A few even helped me to decide which Kielbasa to buy in Nassau Meat Market which had fresh hanging sausages.

When it was time for dinner, we walked to Krolewskie Jadlo to eat what else, but Polish cuisine.   The traditional platter was what I wanted with stuffed cabbage, pierogies, potato pancakes, sausage and cabbages. Believe me, the platter was filled with enough food for two meals!

And, I thought the  St. Anthony of Padua church was stunning on the main street,  862 Manhattan Ave, Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY.

The Polish district is just across the river from Manhattan yet seems a world apart.
