Little Poland → Little Tokyo.

Eavesdrop, a bar inspired by Japanese jazz cafés, is located in the Greenpoint neighbourhood on the northern edge of Brooklyn.

The neighbourhood is historically known as 'Little Poland', home to many Polish immigrants.

However, in the last decade or so, new cafés, eateries, record shops and other modern shops have been increasing, while the streetscape, an 'old-fashioned shopping street' with Polish butcher shops and shops selling pierogi, the Polish national dish, is a mixture of old and new.
