Greenpoint has undergone massive changes, like so much of Brooklyn has, changing from quiet Polish enclave to the Vogue-endorsed Girls setting it is today. And while that’s meant a lot of displacement and gentrification, Peter Pan Bakery has been a constant in the neighborhood for 50 years. The donut shop/breakfast spot is a star attraction in Greenpoint, and its finally getting its closeup in a new short documentary (below the jump) from Keif Roberts and Peter Haas, about its customers and its staff.
Like we said, the documentary is a quick watch, but it’s able to effectively show everyone who moves through the bakery on a given day, from Greenpoint lifers to newcomers with weird Leonardo DiCaprio-based art projects. Though we’d avoid watching it while hungry, because you’ll only get hungrier seeing all those donuts and egg sandwiches.
