I think this is a funny video. Funny for real estate, anyway: The Users Guide to Williamsburg. There’s one drug mention and two uses of f******, so please don’t watch it if you’re sensitive that way.
I like hearing feedback from RDNY.com‘s members who have been out to Williamsburg for the first time. They are often surprised when they walk around and see that Williamsburg is not what they expected.
You can click the map to enlarge it so you can read the street names.
There are three distinct areas in Williamsburg:
Northside: From N. 14th St to Metropolitan over to the BQE. This is traditionally mostly Polish because it’s so close to Greenpoint.
Southside: From Metropolitan down to the bridge, out to the BQE. This is the slice that attracts hipsters because it’s where the L train runs. Rentals are hard to find and they’re expensive, and all the new construction is condos.
Good old fashioned Williamsburg: From below the bridge out along Broadway to Graham, then back along Flushing Blvd to the Naval Center. The BQE bisects this part of the neighborhood. This is the Orthodox Jewish section that used to be the classic Williamsburg image until the hipsters discovered the L train.
