Here's a link to a map that shows the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn. http://maps.google.com/maps?oe=UTF-8&gfns=1&q=greenp...
If the link doesn't work, Google "Greenpoint Brooklyn" and you should find another link.
Going East on Greenpoint Avenue, just across Newtown Creek is Calvary Cemetery. The neighborhood to the East of the cemetery is Laurel Hill. A lot of immigrants started in Laurel Hill, then moved to Greenpoint when they could afford to do so.
