As long as criminals have transportation, a closely knit community is the best security. Stay involved, stay engaged, stay vigilent, stay visible, stay safe.
You always have to be concerned about crime statistics in the big city. Most parts of Brooklyn are relatively safe including Greenpoint. You should visit the local police precinct, talk with local business owners and spend some time in the area and see if you feel safe.
No matter where you live there is always a chance that crime can happen, just do your research and you should be fine.
