Fed by the ultra-convenient L train into Union Square, Williamsburg—located near Greenpoint, Bushwick, and Bedford-Stuyvesant—is one of the hottest neighborhoods in Brooklyn, brimming with artists, galleries, cafes, fashion boutiques, restaurants and nightlife. Its multi-generational Polish, Italian, German, Puerto Rican, Dominican and Hasidic residents live side-by-side young trendsetters, hipsters and professionals attracted to the area’s vibrancy. It is also known as a thriving hub of indie rock. The North Side is populated by many Polish and Italian residents, East Williamsburg by Italian, African American, and Hispanic residents, South Williamsburg by Hasidic residents, and the South Side by Dominican and Puerto Rican residents. Some people refer to the area as “Hipsterville” due to its large aforementioned population of hipsters and artists, which are mixed among the immigrant groups, particularly around Bedford Avenue.
First-time homebuyers are pleased by the many affordable condos and modern loft conversions peppered throughout the area ranging from $300,000 - $1,000,000. These are spacious alternatives to downtown Manhattan’s East Village and Lower East Side artists’ spaces.
Famous Williamsburg landmarks include The Kings County Savings Institution, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Williamsburg Houses, Brooklyn’s first public housing done on a large scale, and the Domino Sugar Refinery Building, which, though it no longer runs, is considered a landmark of the city and so still stands.
Transportation includes the L, J, M, Z, and G subway lines, the Williamsburg Bridge, and bus routes such as B24, B39, B43, B44, B46, B48, B59, B60, B61, and Q54.
